Abstract

The study ascertains the enormity of research works on the `challenges of the urban sector in Nigeria over the years with a view to identifying grey areas where urgent steps need to be taken as a panacea towards improving environmental standards within the urban setting. The study relied on extensive review of earlier studies on the urban sector across the globe. The study found that contemporary strategies adopted to provide appropriate and affordable housing, portable water supply, energy, transportation, security, sewage disposal, drainages for the urban populace are fairly similar revolving around the establishment of national and city-based housing policies and targets and the creation of specialized agencies to handle urban housing tasks. The study concludes that while there are a few signs of progress, the enormity of efforts of governments, at all levels, to address the myriad of challenges of the urban dwellers in Nigeria is simply overwhelming.
