Niger Delta Development Commission and Sustainable Development of Niger Delta Region of Nigeria: The Case of Rivers State

Goddey Wilson


The study is on Niger Delta Development Commission and sustainable development of Niger Delta region of Nigeria, the case of Rivers State. The main objective of the study is to examine the impact of the activities of Niger Delta Development Commission on sustainable development of Rivers State in particular, and Niger Delta region at large. The study used secondary data such as books, journals, newspapers, government gazette, and Niger Delta Development Commission reports on their activities in the region. We considered the conceptual and theoretical issues on sustainable development. Our findings established that Niger Delta Development Commission activities for sustainable development of Niger Delta region are good, but not adequate to achieve the desired development in the region. We therefore recommend modalities the Niger Delta Development Commission should adopt to improve their number and quality of activities in order to achieve the needed development in the region.
