Conflicts especially in Nigeria shall be explored in the course of this paper. Also the concept of sustainable development, conflicts and contradiction in the drive for sustainable development along with approaches to ensuring sustainable development in Nigeria shall also be examined. We shall dwell further on reported cases of conflicts in Nigeria and the incorporation of alternative dispute resolution into the framework for sustainable development. And at the Economic and social development in Africa has been hampered by a number of interrelated issues. These include high cost of credit, low level of education and the imbalance in a rapidly globalising world. There are also many cases of conflicts, almost in the magnitude of organised terrorism. Media reportage has not helped issues either. There is therefore the need to seek alternatives in managing these conflicts. It is this desire that provides motivation for this paper. The conceptual framework of sustainable development as well as the provisions of Alternative Dispute Resolution in dealing end of the paper it shall be proffered that alternative dispute resolution is a better remedy for conflict resolution. We are optimistic that the results will provide viable alternatives to resolving conflicts and thus ensure sustainable development in the continent.
