Pollution Control Mechanisms: A Socio-Legal Analysis


  • Kola O. Odeku


Harmful substances that pollute the environment should be controlled through legal and social interventions. While appropriate legislative regulations will compel polluters to act in line with the provisions of the laws which specifically prohibit acts of pollution, there is social responsibility on the part of the would-be polluter to know that the act of pollution would likely cause irreparable damage and could lead to permanent health problems and death. South Africa, India and the United Kingdom have put in place and are implementing numerous pollution control interventions. Pursuant to this, a modest comparative perspective was done. These efforts will only become successful if there is overall support by all, to ensure that acts of pollution is discouraged rather than encouraged.
