Author(s): Hildah Kalulu
Abstract: Environmental pollution has risen to prominence as a cross-cutting issue in development theory and practice in recent years, and its immense significance in contributing to the ongoing global warming and poverty has been recognized. The findings of this research were that Air pollution was the major form of pollution residents experienced and this was largely due to burning. Quite a number of people did not know the media which ZEMA used to disseminate information and that local people were not involved in Environmental pollution awareness. ZEMA should embark on sensitizing people on the dangers of pollution and deploy more field workers. The report concludes that there is an urgent need for people to be informed on the benefits of preserving their environment and have a better society.
