To prevent Nigeria from environmental deterioration, SAESI has set up the following but not limited strategies:
To review legislations regarding waste management with a view to streamlining them so that there is a comprehensive and clear role for all the agencies, various tiers of government, as well as the public, including other critical stakeholders.
Continuous public enlightenment on the dangers of municipal solid waste to the general public.
Landfills: Standard landfills (not the ordinary dug earth) should be constructed at specific locations to minimize the impacts of municipal solid waste. Landfills are engineered to protect the environment and prevent pollutants from entering the soil and possibly polluting ground water in one way. The municipal solid waste are synthetic liners like plastic to separate the landfill’s trash from the land below it.
Combustor: This involves the burning of municipal solid waste at extremely high temperatures to reduce waste volume, control bacteria, and sometimes generate electricity.
Regardless of the type of waste management strategies will not translate into reality unless the government takes the required initiatives and makes the necessary inputs available. These inputs do not necessarily have to be financial. For example, waste recycling can be promoted through consumer campaigns encouraging citizens to cooperate in waste separation and promoting recycled products.
Citizens should be made to pay a realistic fee for waste services in return for the guarantee that indeed these services will be provided.
There should be effective and proper monitoring of solid waste disposal activities.
Severe Sanction: Re-introduction and enforcement of monthly sanitation. This will assist in cleaning up the city.
Environmental Crisis in Nigeria
The lack of education,
poverty, and the ever-increasing population
has raised many serious environmental issues
in Nigeria. There are different approaches
to Environmental Solutions but the most
effective is the collective and engaged
efforts by all civil society organizations,
NGOs [like Safety Awareness and
Environmental Supports Initiative (SAESI)]
and stakeholders. UN Environment has
recognized the importance of civil society
in environmental sustainability and is
actively working to ensure that civil
society organizations can play a
constructive role in the formulation and
implementation of policy and programmes for
sustainable development. Through a series of
ministerial Declarations and the Governing
Council's Resolutions and the strategy
paper, 'Enhancing Civil Society Engagement
in the Work of the United Nations
Environment Programme'. The Environment
subprogram should aim to contribute to
sustainable development and improved
well-being through empowering stakeholders
at local, regional and national levels...
The World Bank is committed to providing technical knowledge and support to member countries, including contributing to the global knowledge exchange on innovation in addressing environmental and transport issues and the pursuit of greener and more inclusive growth...READ ON>>
In a teamwork environment, people understand
and believe that thinking, planning,
decisions, and actions are better when done
cooperatively. The environment doesn't
develop in a vacuum. Business owners and
executives must work to deliberately build
teamwork among their employees.
