[Ambassador report] Environmental Issues in Films and Books

When it comes talking about Environmental Books we have read, I always mention this publication. It was in a youth programme in August 2018 that I was assigned to address the youths and give a presentation on waste disposal and waste management. In my quest to develop an enriching presentation, I began to surf the internet for books that could be of assistance.

Eventually, I downloaded a PDF file from one of the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) publications on “INTEGRATED SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT”. So far that year, the book has been the most impressive book related to environmental issues to me on waste management.

In the chapter 8 of this book which focuses on waste, the book expressly stressed the various aspects of waste and gave a brilliant data analysis and history which made me want to know more on global issues on waste.

In this book, I was exposed to the various types of waste, sources of waste, waste processing and control practices, critical problems and shortcomings on waste management and waste management policies and strategies. 

Base on the data analysis in this book, it was observed that Thailand has the highest number of severe cases of pollution on water, soil and air by various categories of waste, while Singapore, in all the various categories of waste on water, land and air, has the highest number of “moderate to negligible” cases.

Also, I learnt from this book that the major challenges facing countries in the Asian and Pacific Region with regard to waste management are insufficient government priority and political support for action, lack of finance and ineffective legislation and institutions which I believe it also applies to African countries. This book also gave brilliant waste management policies and strategies that if well adopted, we all have streets in countries not only in the Asian and Pacific region but globally.

Through this exposure, I gained more knowledge and I was able to give a brilliant presentation to the youths.

This book has made understand that many scholars and institutions have really carried out researches and analysis on environmental issues and how to improve environmental situations which we can only get to know them through reading. 

We are all enjoined to develop and improve our reading habit to be able to explore these findings.

    Hey Israel!
    this is your mentor Lisa.

    I think waste management is indeed getting more and more serious especially for those developing nations in the Asia & Pacific regions.
    The newly rising countries are producing more and more yet have not equipped a proper waste management system. Hence, not only in the aspect of urban sanitation problems but to the extent of creating major pollution in the overall territory, waste is problematic.
    Political disputes do come into discussion in the topic of waste management, including the widely known phenomenon of NIMBY.

    I think the sort of report that you have shared is very useful in analyzing the status quo of these states and finding proper solutions they can apply.

    Thanks for recommending us some great material:)

    Hello Israel

    Thank you for the introduction to the great book.
    When I learn about something new, I try to find a lot of statistical information, since those information get me to know about the specifics about the topic, and I can get the overall view of it.
    In this sense, this book seems to be a good recommendation for me. I will definitely try this book in my free time and get the better sense about the environmental solution worldwide.

    Thank you for the great recommendation, and I look forward to reading your next report.
