Climate change impact:Building resilience after 2011 flooding;My work with Odo ona kekere community

In this work, I presented my experience with Odo ona kekere community after the 2011 flooding. Increase in atmospheric temperature resulting from the emission of greenhouse gases will in turn have a significant effect on life forms on the earth surface. Climate change is having serious effect on the earth surface. The effect includes; rise in sea level, change in pattern of rainfall resulting into erosion and flooding and so on.
The aim of this report is to present findings from researches conducted on the 2011 flood disaster and to provide an effective way of recovery and prevent further occurrences.
the work was carried out at Odo-ona kekere community; a small community along Lagos-Ibadan expressway, Oluyole local government, Ibadan.
During the work, many properties were found to be lost into the flood, with many becoming homeless, loss of lives and properties. As a result of these, several strategies were put in place in order to restore people back to their normal state and also prevent future occurrence. The strategies include both the structural approach and non-structural approach. The structural approach deals with river channel modification while the non-structural deals with land use control especially in flood prone areas.
Thus, for prevention of future occurrence of flood, there is need for government intervention in the area waste management, river channel modification, reconstruction of drainages and bridges and also create awareness about flood to the people. Also, the people of Odo-ona kekere should be assisted in the area of access to modern toilet facilities
