Environmental degradation and abuse in urban and rural communities constitute major threats to our development process and have drawn increased attention in the local and international arena.There is increased need to balance industrial and economic activities with their impact on the environment. Our organizations are today hard pressed to evolve strategies that will minimize environmental abuse. However, environmental issues still pose huge challenges. Operations and other staff have to develop competence in analysing and developing programmes that can effectively address environmental concerns. The workshop is designed to enable participants to examine environmental challenges and develop appropriate strategies and policy response.
