Abstract:Purpose is to examine the role of forestry in the prevention or amelioration of drought in Nigeria. Forestry does not provide the panacea for all the drought problems. The importance of this paper thus lies in illustrating the fundamental interdependence between forestry and agriculture and the implication that the two sectors need to be jointly planned if meaningful economic development is to be achieved under Nigerian conditions. Four sections: In section 1 the nature and incidence of drought in Nigeria are briefly discussed; section 2 describes and appraises forestry's potential contribution to amelioration of drought; section 3 sets out the problems of forestry in drought-affected areas of Nigeria; section 4 contains the summary and conclusions.
