…suggests audit of extractive sectorWhile political parties are vying for the Presidency at the upcoming General Elections and are busy promising change and continued progress, the directors of the Environmental Community Health Organization (ECHO) has made it clear that they are yet to hear any talk of developing and maintaining the country’s environmental health.ECHO DirectorRoyston KingThe issue of environmental health and sustainability is a serious one and the situation has deteriorated over the years.
