Abstract

A study by Hunter (1966) describes how large areas along the Red Volta River bank, have been abandoned due to river blindness. The mapping of current land-use status and settlements patterns, using SPOT images, shows how the border of settlements continue to retreat, whereas new land is being reclaimed for bush fields in the abandoned areas
