Abstract

Problem of trqffic congestion is common in most big cities of the world.Drivers of privately owned vehicles and passengers may experience substantially loss of time while in traffic jam. Also, solutions to causes of this menace are well documented in the literature. In spite of the vast studies and applied measures toreduce these jams, the problem seems to be growing stronger on daily basis. One ofthe o~jectives of this study is to examine (l the intensity of traffic congestions are similar along the routes, and on d(fJerent days of the 'week within the ci~y of Lagos.The paper also examines the traffic pattern along ten selected routes within five metropolitan areas in the state. The study shows that 57% of the commuters and motorists in the study area do spend an average of 30 to 60 minutes in congestedtraffic. Three peak periods of traffic congestion were recognized. Indiscriminateparking, road side trading, flooding, existence o.fpot-holes on these roads, vehiclesbreaking down and absence o.f traffic light at some road intersections are some ofthe identified major causes of traffic congestions. Mondays were recognized as the most congested day by 57% of motorists and commuters interviewed. The analysis o.f variance result shows insign(ficant variation in traffic congestion among the fivelocal government areas. However, the observed spatial and temporal pattern o.l vehicular traffic congestion enabled us to suggest possible measures for the reduction of traffic congestion within the metropolis.

Abstract

Prioritizing public tramjport in large cities requires huge amount of money.In Kuala Lumpur for example, public transport services are relatively poor and inefficient due in part to the inability by the major operators to mobilize ample investment capital. Besides, the new funding systems such as the Public Transportation Trust Fund (PTTF) may not be able to solve the problem because they are still unclear and incoherent. Other key challenges are: lack of a pro-transit policy. rapid motorization. urban decentralization as well as dependence on farerevenue and banks to fund new investments. CrucianF. due to the poor design of private rail concessions, government intervention has been inevitable.

Abstract

At least.. there are /11.'0 points of concern in the urbanization studies, i.e. to see urbanization as a process of structural change of rural population (and areas) and to give attention to the interrelationships (in terms of economic, demographic,political. cultural, technological, social changes) between two different types ofgeographical areas, i.e. urban and rural. These two points of concern lay afoundation for a further development of recent~v urbanization studies, called rural urbanization. So far. it is indicated there are three main streams of perspectives in urbanization studies, i.e. modernization, dependence, and inter-dependence urbanization. Each of these perspectives gives a special color on rural urbanization process. At least there are three fimdamental questions that can be raised from theoretical discussion of urbanization, i.e. (1) are distinct regions that recentlyemerge different from what conventionally known as rural and urban areas; and ifthese are special regions. (2) what are the underlying factors and forces that encourage the emergence of these distinct regions? (3). what kind of policies needed to effectively to cope the development of these distinct regions? These three questions actually are underlying three main areas of rural urbanization researchin a certain region, i.e.: (1) answering WHAT. WHERE, and HOW of the process of rural urbanization; (2) finding the main factors affecting the process; and (3) what kind of actions can be carried out dealing with rural urbanization 'problems

Abstract

This paper examines globalization and localization processes that have occurred in tlze most developed and the least developed countries of the world respectiveZv. SpecificalZv, it jocuses on Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) as a case study.While globalization is considered as a pride to the West and Europe, Africa is still being regarded as localized. The paper goes filrther to address the imbalance and disparity that have existed bern.'een the developed and underdeveloped countries in the areas of electronic, commerce, Information Communication Technology (ICT) among others. Also, the opportunities and challenges posed by globalization are critically focused. The paper identifies the Aji-ican problems of underdevelopment and proposes strategies by which these problems could be solved so that Africa would be able to 'catch up' in the globalization process.

Abstract

Indonesia is vulnerable to many type of disasters including natural and anthropogenic disasters. Indonesian seasonal rainfall also shows inter annual variation. Sediment-related disaster such as landslide is the mostji-equent disaster occurred and significantly was impacted to natural, human. and social environment. Although. many disaster mitigation e.Oorts have been conducted to reduce disaster risk there are still urgently need to improve the early 1varning .\~ystem by communicating the risk into local community. Integration qf spatialtemporal analysis qf rainfall and disaster management information !o~vstem would be required to improve the better disaster management in Indonesia. Application of Disaster A1anagement Information System in the study area will presented including evacuation map that used by the local community.

Abstract

This study assessed the effectiveness of the existing land conservation techniques in the peril-urban area of Kadoka metropolis with the aim of ascertaining if the existing conservation methods have helped to alleviate land degradation, andprovide sustainable land use. Random sampling method was used to collect datafrom field observation, measurement and semi-structured interview which are analyzed using descriptive statistics. The results revealed that there exist local conservation techniques along with the modern techniques, some are physical and others are biological methods, even though techniques such as agI'o forestry, which is known to be the best method of farming is present but is yet to take root in the area. Some of these conservation methods are not standardized neither are they implemented in a scientific manner to. ensure e.Df!Ctiveness and efficiency without causing further damage to the lalld, as a result, there may be no end to land degradation in Kaduna if the current approaches to conservation are not improved on. it is suggested that improved water management, improved farming techniques, economic empml'ennent and education of the land users be employed in refilling existing techniques, through which poor management practices such as bush burning, monocropping and overgrazing lvill be avoided 'while fanners will easily embraced new practices such as agro forestry, which provides fanners with income and food all year round as well as protect the environmentfrom degradation.
