Niger Inland Delta
The main problem of the Niger Inland Delta is desertification, caused by climate change and overpopulation. Lake Debo in the Lower Niger Delta is a large reservoir. The lake is fed by the Barra Issa River, a section of the Niger River. The lake contains water the whole year round, even during dry seasons. It therefore plays an important role in the life and work of the local population.
