Streams erode and transport sediments, the loose sediments are moved along the bottom of the river channel (sediment transport) either naturally or based on human enhanced process from its point of origin and deposited in another location within the fluvial system, this process is known as sedimentation. Sediment transport is critical to understanding how rivers work, as it is the process relating flowing water in natural river system and erosion. As a result, there is need to include mitigation, control and management techniques during design, construction and operation to reduce the effects and achieve sustainability. This chapter is aimed at reviewing existing literature on causes, effects, mitigation and management approaches for erosion, sediment transport and sedimentation in rivers and Dams.
