Public open spaces
Roadside vegetation and beautification
Environmental rules and regulations
Law enforcement.

In view of the above, we tend to apply a holistic and integrated approach aimed at sustained improvement to lead pro-actively and participate in public dialogue.

We also select topical issues and concentrate on those where practical progress is achievable within a short time.

Our Constitutional Rights

The 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, pursuant to section 20 of the Constitution, the State is empowered to protect and improve the environment and safeguard the water, air, land, forest and wildlife of Nigeria.

We also welcome innovative ideas and support towards achieving our set goals. Our strategies are versatile, through the media to entertainment, community development to government participation, stakeholders and the private sectors alike. All these and more are geared towards making Nigeria a clean, green and serene environment.
