Fisheries: Urgent action needed on overfishing, pollution and climate change. Click
FAO's Committee on Fisheries in Rome this 9th of June, 2014 has called for urgent action and Nigeria should not be left out from the international community.
The Niger delta area is fed with oil pollution and unhealthy oil exploration activities which has left the region threatened with little or no aquatic/fishing life. This is supposed to be the source of livelihood for the rurals but has plunged them into abject poverty and restiveness. Strategies for restoration is imperative for progressive fisheries and other agricultural activities for food production in the area.
Climate change issues, sea level rising. Impact of pollution and destructive activities of man.
There are lots of ways we can help our environment, to ensure healthy goods and services it can afford.
One major problem we have in Nigeria is the practice of dumping wastes in our surrounding water bodies and drainage systems. It is heinous, the environment is living, this practice has high degree of adverse effect which turns round to affect man, the defaulter. It results in blockages of water draining channels expediting localized flooding with areas of high water tables more vulnerable.
Proper waste disposal is realistic in our neighbourhoods. just a little planning and commitment to locating the right places to dump our wastes is what we need to ensure clean and healthy environment. Very importantly for those living in riverine areas, that water surrounding you can actually harbour and produce fish for your household if you can take a second look at the possibility, instead of facilitating breeding grounds for mosquitoes and diseases.
