  8. To support health promotion and disease prevention by creating awareness and providing support services on vector control and any other environmental situation conducive for the spread of communicable and non communicable diseases.

  13. To provide special safety service unit throughout the country.

  14. To collaborate and partner with government agencies, private bodies, other similar non-governmental organizations and international agencies in safety and environmental surveillance and environmental protection support in Nigeria.

 

STRATEGIES

To prevent Nigeria from environmental deterioration, SAESI has set up the following but not limited strategies:

  1. To review legislations regarding waste management with a view to streamlining them so that there is a comprehensive and clear role for all the agencies, various tiers of government, as well as the public, including other critical stakeholders.

  2. Continuous public enlightenment on the dangers of municipal solid waste to the general public.

  3. Landfills: Standard landfills (not the ordinary dug earth) should be constructed at specific locations to minimize the impacts of municipal solid waste. Landfills are engineered to protect the environment and prevent pollutants from entering the soil and possibly polluting ground water in one way. The municipal solid waste are synthetic liners like plastic to separate the landfill’s trash from the land below it.

  4. Combustor: This involves the burning of municipal solid waste at extremely high temperatures to reduce waste volume, control bacteria, and sometimes generate electricity.

  5. Regardless of the type of waste management strategies will not translate into reality unless the government takes the required initiatives and makes the necessary inputs available. These inputs do not necessarily have to be financial. For example, waste recycling can be promoted through consumer campaigns encouraging citizens to cooperate in waste separation and promoting recycled products.

  6. Citizens should be made to pay a realistic fee for waste services in return for the guarantee that indeed these services will be provided.

  7. There should be effective and proper monitoring of solid waste disposal activities.

  8. Severe Sanction: Re-introduction and enforcement of monthly sanitation. This will assist in cleaning up the city.
