    Nigeria is one of Africa’s largest emitters of greenhouse gases. A significant percentage of this pollution takes place in the Niger Delta region thanks to the existence of multination oil companies and the activities of hundreds of illegal refineries where local people process stolen crude oil.

    For a country that is at the receiving end of the environmental impact of climate change, there is a growing sense that this West African country should curb its emission of greenhouse gases. Private initiatives and effective legislation are likely to play crucial roles in Nigeria’s drive to curbing its emission of greenhouse gases.

    For many children with disability life is even harder in the developing world. Stigma and poverty limit their access to essential health services to enable them lead a normal life.

    However in Kibera, one of Kenya’s most populated slum, children with disability have found a new lease on life.
