Waste Management and Environmental Protection for Community Sustainable Development in Nigeria (Published)

Waste, environmental protection and community sustainability are products of development, and most daily activities of human beings generate waste. The negative consequences of economic development have long been observed by eminent economic theorists, such as Smith, Marx, Malthus, Ricardo and Mill (Clarin, 2018). There are some indicators that show that most countries have failed to achieve sustainable development, and some countries are far from it. There has also been a growing concern about the environmental limit to growth and development as well as the imperative of environmental quality and management. As a result, this paper firstly conceptualized the following terms-“Waste”,“Waste Management”,“Environment”, “Environmental Sustainability”, Community, Community Sustainability, and Sustainable Development. The paper further discussed the composition of waste materials in Nigeria. It again examined various international and national measures or activities taken in relation to the concept of community sustainable development. The scholars in addition discussed the rationale for environmental protection and the negative impacts of waste on Nigerian environment. Furthermore, several measures taken internationally and nationally to ameliorate the negative impacts of wastes on environment were concisely discussed.

Evolutionary-Genetic Regularities of Origins of an Economic and Legal Systems Imbalance at a Regional Level (Published)

Issues of economic security enforcement are important for both citizens, agents of economic activity, and bodies of government at all levels of the power vertical. World economy spottiness, acceleration of globalisation processes, sufficiently strengthening world markets competition complicate achieving such goal as economic security guarantee. To accomplish this task successfully it is necessary to combine scholarly based, systematic and coordinated activities of all institutional structures – state power, bodies of local self-government, business community, and social organisations. Despite the measures of economic and legal character taken by the government in the transition period development of a mixed economy in the regions is at the formation stage. Deficiency of effective economic policy and balanced legislative control of these processes resulted in setback in production and, as a consequence, demographic situation decline, as well as intensive interregional migration of population. Moreover, market competition mechanism divided regions depending on the existing economic resources. That is why nowadays there appeared an objective necessity to work out methods of regulating imbalance of economic and legal system to accomplish the task of economic security enforcement and sustainable development of socio-economic processes at a regional level.In the article a number of regularities of the origins of economic and legal systems imbalance at a regional level is determined on the basis of evolutionary-genetic approach. The notion of this phenomenon essence allows anticipating a model of region sustainable development and its economic security guarantee.

This paper is a follow-up to an earlier one in which the challenges of the natural environment of Nigerian nation are highlighted. In this paper, the major themes around which researches can be built, are highlighted. These themes are built on some of the challenges of the natural environment. They include the climate of Nigeria and the climate change phenomenon, the lands and soils of Nigeria, Nigerian vegetation and plant biodiversity, Nigerian wildlife and animal biodiversity, environmental degradation and degradation of valuable lands and soils of Nigeria. Others include wastes and their disposal in Nigeria, natural enemies of plants and animals in Nigeria, environmental pollution in the country, environmental sanitation and hygiene in Nigeria, management of the natural environment, and natural disasters in Nigeria. A number of others on which researches can be built are also listed to include human resources development in issues of the natural environment, environmental laws in Nigeria and their enforcement and environmental education in Nigeria. For each of these themes for the focus of researches on the natural environment of Nigeria, the justification for it is itemized, so also is a list of possible diverse researchers in it compiled. Researchers are expected to build their research topics around these themes, with a view to contributing their quota in salvaging the natural environment of Nigeria and place it on an appropriate pedestal for sustainable development
