Evaluation of Climate Change Impact on Lagos Metropolis using Corridor Mapping Technique of Open Defecation Sites along Mile2 - Okokomaiko area of Lagos State Nigeria
Lagos State has several slums and shanties with very poor, some nonfunctional and many others without sanitary facilities, thus resorting to urination and defecation in the public. Open urination and defecation are a common occurrence across many communities in the megacity of Lagos and is especially true in communities with higher illiteracy rate, poverty and population density. The coastal and inland flooding caused by climate change has continued to further spread infectious diseases especially in communities without sanitary facilities, do practice open defecation, thereby increasing the 21st century shame. This study deployed the use of Global Position System (GPS) and a survey instrument among 250 individuals along the fringes of Mile2 -Okokomaiko of the Lagos Badagry Expressway where open defecations were spotted. Thirteen locations were spotted where 232 persons confessed to practice regularly open defecation, among them were road/market sellers, commercial drivers and bus conductors, waste pickers, construction workers, business/office workers and few others. Implications of the study was drawn on the influence of climate change on environmental sanitation, waste management and health were drawn in addition to recommendations.
