This research is therefore intended to assess causes of wetland degradation other than agriculture, investigate the general effects of wetland degradation on the environment and explain how wetlands can be used sustainably for human activities, to minimize the dangers of wetland degradation through both legal and scientific approaches and to promote the “wise use” slogan to prevent major effects. This is because if current negative impacts on wetlands system caused by wise wetland conversion and poor cultivation practices are allowed to continue we shall experience further environmental degradation and reduced productivity in the whole system. It is therefore important that causes be identified, effects understood and guidelines be recommended to guide and educate current and future wetland users ensure that wetlands are used in a sustainable manner and negative effects mitigated through application of guidelines.
