We are experiencing extremelly high pollution out in the Industrial area (workington) everyday it lets off toxic plastic fumes and we have tried to speak to the company concerned about it and is ignored. I think its about time further action is followed up on as it appears to fall on deaf ears. It is an absolute health hazard, if nothing is done about it then it is a great concern of the disrespect and lack of awareness it causes to the peoples' health who work around these areas, not only health but toxic to the ozone..

#Mable Dube on Nov 04, 2018 :
i think the best way to confront 'air' pollution dilemma in Zimbabwe is through stakeholder engagement and regional integration.
#A.MUKWASI on May 24, 2017 :
there is need for a cooperative approach between the local authority and community in order to reduce water pollution
also there should be awareness and campaigns on how to reduce pollution once public participation is involved they become compliant and together we can make it

pollution is really a sad not;lets unite and control it
#E. Makonese on Apr 12, 2016 :
pollution control starts in our brains and thats when it can manifest physically. too few cases have been reported and taken up to court in the past years. the community need to make use of the constitution and enforce our rights. we the people have a constitutional right to a healthy environment, as such we need to take legal actions more often against the polluters. by so doing the courts will help us in redeeming our environment.

how do we plan on solving the problem if I may ask
#P Washe on May 12, 2015 :
pollution is a complex problem that should be adressed from mulitidimensional angles ranging from cultural,social and economic perpective if it is to be reduced.
#David Chibhoyi on Apr 05, 2015 :
The most important thing is awareness, the second thing is to nudge and finally some regulations. its not only the fine money we want, but a sustainable behavior change by polluters. Hazards associated with pollution are to be communicated in capital letters.
