News from the Field

Within the four Local Government Areas to be surveyed – Eleme, Tai, Khana and Gokana – 200 sites are known to be polluted and a further 100 may be affected.

Given the large number of sites to be assessed, it will take some time to gather and process the site data. Fieldwork updates will report progress at regular intervals, including information on the number of sites completed in each region.
Fieldwork information will also be made available in the form of photographs, satellite images and details on what type of data is being collected.
