EFFECTS OF URBAN ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARD ON NIGERIA ECONOMY

EFFECTS OF URBAN ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARD ON NIGERIA ECONOMY

  CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCT

 

BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY

  Environmental hazard is a broad term used in defining such phenomenon as earthquake, and pollution, which are brought about as a result of active forces within the earth or on the earth’s surface, or by man’s activities.

Considering ever present threat of these hazards to the destruction, are likely to damage both lives and property. It is necessary to conduct research and studies into the nature causes and consequences of urban environmental hazard and also to know the different ways in  which the Ebonyi State Environmental Protection Agency (EBSEPA) have contributed in solving these problems. To appreciate this work, it will be important to look into the brief on the Ebonyi State Environmental Protection Agencies (EBSEPA) is an organisation, which was established on December 1999 following he creation of Ebonyi State

The EBSEPA’s major statutory function is to maintain a programme of technical assistance for individuals and bodies whether public or private in order to achieve excellent standard of environmental cleanliness, regulations an standards set out under the Edicts, the agency applied for the excellency’s approval of an environmental tribunal/court as recommended in the EBSEPA Edict of 1999. The spontaneous reaction and approval of His excellency made EBSEPA’s dream a reality as the tribunal come into being in December 1999.

This paper was organised in an attempt to foster a better understanding of environmental hazard mitigation and the management of their effects on physical properties and human resources as well as to examine the situation as it  exists today in Ebonyi State for instance Uyo’s episode in the West African  sub-region is prone to effects of earthquake and volcanism. Flood and other hazards have also occurred in different parts of the sub-region in the pest. There is a need therefore, for more information from the policy of these phenomenon which should pave w ay for a policy readiness so that the countries, states, towns an villages in the sub-region can no longer continue with the consequences of the socio-economic aspects of these hazards in the future.

There is a major aim of the planned project as well as field study. The above organisation (EBSEPA) started as a result of a task force charged with the responsibility to  restrict and control every forms of pollution in both federal and state capitals.

Industrialisation is vital to a nation’s  socio-economic development as well as its political stature in the international committee of nations. It provides employment opportunities for a good percentage of the population in medium to highly developed economies however, industries vary according to products, characteristics by complexity of waters discharged. In developing countries such as Nigeria, siting industries is determined by various criteria, some of which are environmentally unacceptable threat posing serious threat to public health.

EFFECTS OF URBAN ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARD ON NIGERIA ECONOMY

Although industrialisation is inevitable, various devastating ecological and human disaster, which have continuously occurred over the last three decades or so implicate industries as major contributors to environmental degradation and pollution problems of various magnitudes. Industrial waste and emissions contain toxic and hazardous substances most of which can be detrimental to human health. These include heavy metals such as lead, cadmium, mercury, and toxic organic chemicals such as pesticides, polychlorinated biphenyis (PCBS) dioxins, polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHS), petrochemicals and phenolic compounds. For instance, there  was the case of the “Minamata disease” in Japan, which the patient has received untreated effluents from the low level of environmental awareness in developing countries such as Nigeria, coupled with the non-existence of  environmental  protection laws, and the abject poverty of these nations the developed countries have  within the last decade, embarked upon “toxic  waste trade or illegal dumping of toxic wastes in poor, debt-strapped developing  countries.
