Environmental Pollution or degradation is the unfavourable alteration of our surroundings through direct or indirect effects of changes in energy patterns, radiation levels, chemical and physical constitution and abundance of organisms. These changes may affect humans directly or indirectly through their supplies of water and agriculture and other biological products, their physical objects or possessions, or their opportunities for recreation and appreciation of nature (PACEP, 1965), hence the need for sustainable management. The Professional Diploma in Environmental Management is aimed at helping companies and individuals save time and money by teaching practicable, cost effective methods that are promptly ‘implementable’.  Written Examination and a Work based assignment are part of this program. Contact the Registrar OGBS for details.
