DIRECTORATES

4) DIRECTORATE OF ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION MANAGEMENT AND CONTROL

This directorate works towards managing the environment to prevent and control pollution. Pollution is the contamination of the environment which causes adverse change and living in areas of high pollution has serious long term health effects. People of all ages who live in high pollution areas for extended periods place themselves at increased risk of various neurological disorders. Pollution control is necessary without which the waste products from consumption, heating, agriculture, mining, manufacturing, transportation and other human activities, whether they accumulate or disperse, will degrade the environment. In the hierarchy of controls, pollution prevention and waste minimization are more desirable than pollution control.
