2016 MPhil IESS - Waste Management in Basic Schools in the Tema Metropolis
JEMIMA AKUA OWUSU 2016
An increase in waste generation without a corresponding rise in waste management infrastructure has significantly resulted in growing environmental and sanitation-related challenges. The absence of appropriate regulatory and the requisite waste management facilities, knowledge and poor attitudes towards waste management have mainly been responsible for environmental and sanitation challenges in Ghana. The study assessed waste management strategies and facilities, the level of knowledge, attitude, perception and awareness towards waste management in three selected basic schools in the Tema Metropolis in Ghana.
