 en The Interface between Architecture and Agriculture in Nigeria: An Environmental Perspective


The flood of Rural-Urban drift continues to flow in favour of the urban areas, paradoxically, as food flows from the rural areas into urban areas. This poses a dilemma of tragic proportions: people desert the villages to death and over-populate the urban areas to explosion, forgetting that life or death of the rural areas signifies the same for urban areas. This paper examines some causes, effects and ways of balancing the equation to attain, maintain, and sustain a harmonious symbiotic coexistence between Rural and Urban areas. This work identifies inadequate housing and stock of infrastructure as formidable factors that induce the decisions about where people may willingly live happily. @JASEM
