Abstract

There is little discussion regarding natural resources management issues in Nigeria, unlike many other places around the world, where such issues have made significant contributions to research growth. This is a troubling situation that complicates Nigeria's present need to address her increasing sequence of aggravations related to land cover modifications. Sustainable use of land, water, solid minerals, and forest is difficult and overwhelms local efforts. Demographic pressures and the corresponding need for developments and societal livability have a proclivity to overuse land resources and impact negatively on their present quality and future regeneration. Traditional and indigenous approaches are still the bases of natural resources management. The cumulative challenges of these issues with other prevalent anomalies are increasingly compromising Nigeria's land resources base. However, geo-spatial technology with its potential for policy and decision-support is being set forth to address these challenges and to fill the current gaps in knowledge of natural resources management.
