The best has not been realised from water resources related environmental protection projects in Nigeria due to problems militating against such projects at the planning, management and execution stages. The dynamics of the policies directed towards addressing environmental hazards are considered and the constraints identified. Both the purposes and objectives involved in the projects are found to be multiple in nature. The crux of the planning and management problem is identified in form of developing a scientific model that would optimize fund allocation to the multiple purposes taking into simultaneous consideration the multiple objectives considered relevant at the level of authorisat ion. Game theory as a mathematical tool is used to model and solve planning and management problems involved in water resources related environmental protection project of multi-purpose/multi-objective nature considering a Nigerian situation.
