About the African Centre for Rural Development & Environment (ACERDEN)
The African continent is facing a series of technological, human, social, economic and environmental challenges, which if not resolved, will disrupt the basic life support systems, contribute to the degeneration of institutional structures and perpetuate underdevelopment.
Nigeria, like other developing countries, is faced with the problem of food insecurity, widespread poverty, illiteracy, human misery and environmental degradation among the urban and rural dwellers. Access to education, health and safe drinking water are grossly inadequate in the urban cities and are almost non-existent in many rural areas of Nigeria.
