My CRQ: How can proper disposal and management of solid waste have any impact on environmental degradation and health related issues in Karachi?
This is my current CRQ form which has gone through a hectic process of metamorphosis yet evolved in the most alluring form possible. By going through discussion forum and by reading other’s CRQ I managed to somehow formulate my own CRQ by identifying the syntax and grammatical errors while taking the audience appeal in my prompt notice because solid waste management have always been an issue unresolved so it being the unheard voice of our community.
Discussion forum was one of that platform which urged me to look and relook on my research question as it being the soul of this research therefore it developed a sense of responsibility and sense of urgency within me which was really beneficial for me to put forward such a CRQ.
The society in which I am raised up was a different then because with passing time many things change especially the population of city, which drastically rise making Karachi one of the biggest metropolitans. Aquarists can easily relate to my example that as you have set up the aquarium and as soon as you introduce fish you need to keep nitrates level in check and never over crowd it because it result in causalities which is only due to high waste rate in water. Same goes for us human beings too that as with passing time our population increased but our ways of managing solid wastes remained archaic like burning the trash that is one of the major reason for air pollution. Karachi’s environmental conditions regularly fluctuate due to air pollution while asthma, cough, skin irritation yet remain some of the common disease of our society.
As the garbage is not properly disposed of which is making the scenario worse day after day because it has been destroying the Eco system yet alone we Homo sapiens. It’s an alarming situation for the concerned authorities as this show their weak narrative and millions of dollars spent on these projects were just a fluke. If the core of this issue is properly recognize only then can be a strong narrative develop. But this need a proper research survey that whether the major stake holders, general public would play their part or just wait for some miracle to happen. The general public need to comprehend this and start properly disposing of garbage because a healthy outside starts from inside.
