By Philip Aniah Ayikene, Emmauel Wedam, Modesta Pukunyiem and Gladys Yinimi

Abstract

The study was carried out in the Upper East Region of Ghana, Bongo District, to assess the driving causes and effects soil erosion in the District and the Region at large. While soil erosion is widely recognized as reducing environmental resource capacity to provide for the populations, few studies have explicitly measured its effects on the rural farmer and the apparent root causes of erosion in the region. Upper East Region is particularly vulnerable to the effects of soil erosion with one of the highest rates of soil erosion in Ghana

Topics: Soil erosion, apparent and root causes of erosion, socio-economic impacts, poverty, and population growth.
