Dr. Niger acknowledges that he is not the first author to write about the issues facing the Niger Delta. Most of the publications are on political disputes and crude oil, he explains. But this is on the interest of the Delta itself.

In the 2012 book, “The Coastal Niger Delta: Environmental Development and Planning” (published by Trafford Publishing) – which is getting a revived marketing push – Dr. Michael Amaitari Niger, a scholar of the ecology and area of the Niger Delta, reveals the details of his study regarding environmental issues affecting his homeland.
For several years, Dr. Niger has looked with concern at such problems as flooding, erosion and other natural occurrences in The Coastal Niger Delta. Dr. Niger shares his experiences studying these problems. As a native of the area, Dr. Niger is passionately determined to find solutions to the problems, problems which he says have been amplified because of neglect and abuse of the area over time.
An excerpt from “The Coastal Niger Delta”:
“The main issues of urban sprawl in the coastal Niger Delta are associated to topography, geography as well as the human aspect. The aim is to throw light on the expansion possibilities of the delta towns/cities according to the planning guidelines adapted to the particularities of the Delta taking into account the administrative organizations.”
Dr. Niger acknowledges that he is not the first author to write about the issues facing the Niger Delta. “Most of the publications are on political disputes and crude oil,” he explains. “But this is on the interest of the Delta itself.”
