Controlling pollution in Harare, like in any other place, can be combated starting from individual perception. Lets shun littering streets and place rubbish in designated places. Through this, the Harare City Council, EMA, ZRP e.t.c will find their work easier and our Harare will once again be the sunshine city.

As the are still yet to correct the carbon emissions,taxes should be lavied on a much higher rate as this will trigger them to correct pollution problems rapidly

#munashe size on Jun 10, 2013 :
The industries in Zimbabwe can not afford for new ways on reducing pollution because it is better to pay of Government than pay fines there is to much corruption to stop the pollution in Zimbabwe
#M.Tavengana on May 10, 2013 :
I think the EMA guys should revise their approach to these pollution problems.They should call out for the protection of the environment and not more on the payment of pollution.Yes the polluter pays principle is effective but is the money used on the environmental protection or is diverted for other uses.Another issue is fines are way too low so industries find comfort in paying to pollute rather than investing in pollution reduction measures.Please please lets rise for our environment before its too late
#dirwai o simbarashe on Oct 31, 2011 :
its easier than previously thought to combat pollution. it all starts with proper govenance, planning and participation of the society
