Title E-Waste Environmental Pollution and Health Risk Implications for Early Child Care, Growth and Development in Nigeria
Creator Umar Ibrahim
Subject E-waste generation and management, Environmental pollution, Health hazard, Early child care.
Description Nigeria is one of the dumping grounds for electrical and electronic waste materials and appliances that are outdated or close to end-of-life cycle (e-waste). E-waste contains potentially harmful substances. Inappropriate and unsafe management practices of these wastes can cause environmental pollution and health hazard and impact early child care, growth and development. The study examines the issues of disposal, recycling and proper management of e-waste materials in order to tackle the menace of health risk exposure to early life. Some recommendations were made as; All stakeholders (government, industry, environmental groups, and citizens) must work in cooperative collaboration with NESREA to effectively manage and mitigate the problems of e-waste in Nigeria. Nigeria should immediately ratify the Bamako Convention and entrench stringent enforcement regime of the National Environmental (Electrical/Electronic Sector) Regulations 2011 and the Nigerian Decree of 1988 prohibiting all imports of hazardous wastes.
