Climate Change, Marine Plastic Pollution and/or the Rising Sea Level

Comprehending morphodynamic fluctuations of shoreline positions is crucial for understanding nearshore research for coastal managers and policy makers in this era of climate unpredictability and change.

Researchers studying global environmental change discovered that the problem of vulnerability in Nigeria has received little attention; these phenomena include the endeavor to enhance adaptation actions and link such impacts to the desire for development.

There are significant knowledge gaps in areas including numerous drivers, the effects of abrupt change, the cost of adaptation and its implications, risk communication to stakeholders, vulnerabilities, and the resilience of natural and adaptive systems, as well as the human system.

Understanding the main drivers of the recent rapid change in climate, with a special attention paid to human-caused factors, the effects of policy on society, and an analysis of environmental issues generally rather than just those related to natural climate change causes alone, should be the focus of environmental change in Nigeria.

Nigeria produces the most plastic waste in Africa and has the fastest-growing e-waste issue in the sub-Saharan area, according to the World Bank.

Therefore, in Nigeria, there is a critical need for recycling plastic wastes into a means of income development. As a tool for implementation and diversification, stakeholders in Nigeria should look for and identify effective ways to recycle plastic trash.
