NACGOND-sponsored Environmental Clubs located across many communities in the Niger Delta were visited by member organizations and NACGOND Secretariat for club monitoring and evaluation. The visits feature in-depth interaction with school club members on various environmental and club sustainability issues.
To support her Environmental Sustainability initiatives, NACGOND sponsors the establishment of bee farms in communities. Bee farms have been successfully established in Boki LGA as a livelihood initiative that also promotes environmental sustainability. The members of NACGOND Environmental Club in Boki LGA are the first beneficiaries of the training and the establishment of farms. The capacity is expected to spread across communities.
As Environmental Centre for Oil Spills and Gas Flaring better known as NACGOND commemorates the World Environment Day 2020 tagged ‘’Time for Nature’’, it is a good opportunity to reflect on our commonality. Years of oil and gas exploration in the Niger Delta region have rather led to unquantifiable levels of environmental degradation and violence in our communities. Our environments and livelihoods have never been spared from prolonged cases of environmental degradation. From Ogoniland in Rivers State to Gbaramatu Kingdom in Delta State, and all over the Niger Delta, the story is the same. Pollution from oil and gas activities have undermined nature.
The Abia State Secondary School Competition held at the Green Global Hotel Ltd along Port Harcourt Aba road on Tuesday 23rd July 2019 by 10.00am by the Foundation for Environmental Rights Advocacy and Development (FENRAD) in collaboration with National Coalition against Oil Spills and Gas Flaring in Niger Delta (NACGOND) with support from Dutch Embassy. Five schools from Abia State made it to the final quiz competition as the representative of the entire schools that have NACGOND's Environmental Clubs in Abia State.
The activity has shown significant impact on the students and their immediate environment as they now engage their peers and parents that lack basic environmental hygiene and knowledge in series of environmental education and sanitation practices in their various communities and schools.
