Abstract

The unearthing of crude oil in Nigeria and its subsequent effects on the nation's growth has further underpinned the contradictions of the "resource curse theory". This study aims at assessing the impact on the measures put in place by the international oil corporations (IOCs) on women livelihood in Ogulagha Island of Delta State, Nigeria. This paper reveals that the mitigation measures (skill acquisition, financial support, employment opportunities, provision of social amenities, regular clean up and provision adequate health facilities) put in place by IOCs have no significant impact on women livelihood in Ogulagha Island, Delta State of Nigeria. This paper recommends that more research that is context specific with one on one interviews need to be conducted to actually know which measures can enhance the women livelihood in Ogulagha Island of Delta State, Nigeria.
