Impacts of river bank erosion are multifarious: social, economic, health, education and sometimes political, The first and foremost impact is social, i.e., homelessness due to land erosion which compels people to migrate, After forced migration they suffer from economic crisis, namely loss of occupation and loss of property, and they are at the risk of poverty and sometimes involvement in criminal activities.

Comrade Nurudden Bello ,the regional director of African climate reporters  during the visit urged African farmers to find means  of planting more trees in their farm land,so as to protect their farm land against all forms of threat.
