Current situation

Based on the UNDP and Disaster Waste Recovery (DWR) assessment on Waste and Debris (Jan 2015) it’s evident that ongoing hostilities in North Eastern States of Nigeria have led to signifcant accumulations of uncollected solid wastes in residential areas and is resulting in serious public health risks through decomposing wastes leading to increase in vermin and high potential for spread of diseases. If this continues without intervention there will be a continued increase in public health risk to vulnerable populations and the environment.
