What are the outcomes of urban flight?

What are the outcomes of urban flight?

Most urban migrates, based on their individual education do realize their dreams and build better lives for themselves, their families and their communities. Most professionals from Asia, Africa, Europe, etc., could attest to that.  For a majority of others, the road to the city leads to poverty, homelessness and tragedy such as prostitution and other ills. Other urbanization issues include access to clean water, sanitation, shelter, poverty, HIV/Aids and other host of problems few government bothers to tackle.

UN estimates about two-thirds of the world's population to live in cities within 50 years.

Maintenance and repairs, whether on an ad hoc or contract basis, are not capitalized. Maintenance is the regularly recurring activity of keeping equipment in normal or expected operating condition. Repair is the activity of putting equipment back into normal or expected operating condition. The total effort to obtain the expected service life for normal production capacity during the life of the capital equipment item, including when necessary the replacement parts, is considered repairs and maintenance and should be treated as a current operating expense. Consumable supplies and license fees are not capitalized.

  • The Dry Season

    In the dry season, agricultural operation is impossible without irrigation. Farmers move to cities, creating population density and poverty. The dry season is one of two seasons in semi-arid Africa.  The dry season is characterized by low humidity, lack of water and depletion of subsistence crops between November to April yearly.
  • The Rainy-Wet Season

    The rainy or wet season occurs during a warm season, or summer, precipitation takes place.  In the wet season, air quality improves, fresh water quality improves, and vegetation grows substantially, leading to crop yields late in the season. Rivers overflow their banks and drains into lakes along the white Volta river networks.    
  • Dredging Existing Lakes

    UTAP proposes expanding five (5) midsize lakes spreading along the White Volta, dredged or dug-up to regain lost storage, improve water supply reservoirs, improve fish habitat, and use nutrient-rich sediments for planting of fruits and vegetables. None of the lakes sediments are considered contaminated in any form.
