My CRQ: How can proper disposal and management of solid waste have any impact on environmental degradation and health related issues in Karachi?
Solid waste management still remain an unsolved mystery. Billions of rupees have been spent on these management projects but yet to yield any result. Therefore, a research from gross route level should be conducted. Sources for this project should be clearly identified while the primary sources remain the core of this research.
Where we are standing right now would be the perfect question for the survey as state of mind of general public play an important role so for that purpose a general survey would carry out where the audience would be inquired. Do you think that improper disposal of garbage has been a reason for environmental degradation? After a successful survey, interviews should be the next step which would be done of the concerned authorities. Medical reports being published by the medical hospitals is an important primary source. Doctors, would be interviewed and asked about frequently found diseases find in Karachi and their growing rate. Doctor’s opinion about research topic would be the crucial part.
Due to my family background I would easily access to different hospitals and concerned authorities so we can know their take on the topic. Questionnaires would be prepared by myself which would be directly targeting the CRQ. 50 young boys should be surveyed so to see is there any sense of emergency among their answers and if they are aware with the gravity of situation.
Major stake holders would be interviewed so they could identify the core of the problem and what they have been doing up till now. There have been recently many projects in the past like ‘Give Garbage and take Gold’ in which garbage was recycled. Where are these projects and why they are not operating right now? While reports by WHO would be well appreciated and studied and compare it with past reports.
