The study assessed the adverse effect of gas flaring on the environment and the potential benefits of its reduction on the local economy and the environment at large. This was with a view to suggesting an integrated strategy and management plan for sustainable environment in the gas flaring areas. The study used both primary and secondary data. The primary data was obtained through administration of two hundred and ten questionnaires which focused mainly on the impact of gas flaring on farm activities; adaptation to gas flaring effects; farmers perception on gas flaring and climate change and crop performance; etc. coupled with intensive fieldwork. The data w ere presented in form of tables showing frequencies and percentages. Secondary data used were those of monthly rainfall totals between 1992 and 2002, obtained from the meteorological station of the Qua Iboe Terminus (QIT). The method of trend fittings was used in analyzing the data. The result of the study clearly shows that gas flaring has contributed significantly to environmental degradation in the area.
