Environmental pollution problems of small communities in the Niger Delta
conference contributionposted on 2018-02-12, 15:09 authored by C.E. Egborge
This paper discusses the seemingly negligible but important environmental problems of the small communities in the Delta region of Nigeria and stresses the need to introduce measures that will make the inhabitants conscious of the preservation of the environment as a means of checking the occasional outbreak of diseases such as cholera. Some simple measures and systems are suggested which if introduced will go a long way towards improving the quality of the environment in these communities. The author concludes that the achievement of the objective depends much on the simplicity of the system and their effective management.
