What has Nigeria done to prevent flooding? | Inside Story

Northeastern Nigeria is seeing some of its worst flooding in years. Hundreds of thousands of homes have been destroyed.
The flooding has been made worse by seasonal rain and planned water release from a dam in neighbouring Cameroon.
Lagdo Dam is in northern Cameroon and was built in 1982.
Nigeria was supposed to build its own dam to offset the excess, but never finished it.
So, what’s been the government’s response?

Suleiman Adamu – Nigeria’s Minister of Water Resources.

David Arinze – Climate Activist and Renewable Energy Specialist.

Manu Lekunze – Teaching Fellow in Politics and International Relations at the University of Aberdeen and Author of ‘Complex Adaptive Systems, Resilience and Security in Cameroon’.
