We are very pleased to announce our first winner of #Photo4Climate Instagram Challenge: congratulations Olumide Climate Idowu. Your photo from Nigeria captures how public #health is being compromised by waste. Here is the original caption:
#ClimateChange & #Health Matters. Ibadan (Yoruba: Ìbàdàn or fully (Ìlú) Ẹ̀bá-Ọ̀dàn, meaning 'the city at the edge of the savannah' is the capital city of Oyo State and the third largest metropolitan area, by population, in Nigeria, after Lagos and Kano, with a population of over 3.5 Million, and the country's largest metropolis by geographical area.
Climate Change Is Real. Poor Management of Our Canal Exposes Healthcare Workers, Waste Handlers and The Community to Infections, toxic effects and injuries.
Therefore "Ibadan" can and must keep the environment safe. #LetsDoMore
Location: Bode Canal, Ibadan, Oyo State.
