Survey of Attitude of Residents towards Environmental Deterioration in Nigeria and Factors Influencing their Willingness to Participate in Reducing the Trend: A Case Study of Waste Management

J. Ohakwe, I.C. Nnorom and I.S. Iwueze

Abstract:
This research took a thorough study of how Nigerians view their environment as a prelude to support and participate in any effort aimed at saving the environment. Present results indicate that about 53.6% of our respondents were willing to support any effort to curb the rate of environmental deterioration because majority of the respondents (53.2%) are aware and 53.4% of them are concerned about the increasing environmental deterioration in the country. Using ordered probit model on data collected through questionnaires, it was found that significant factors of willingness to participate in any effort to curb the rate of environmental deterioration include age, sex, level of income, awareness of this trend, concern about its adverse effects and the local level of environmental quality.
