2Title: Strategies to mitigate pollution and risks on climate by population increase on cities indeveloping counties.IntroductionThis case study report is based on a scenario affecting major cities in developingcountries in terms of pollution that has affected the surrounding environment. In that connection,the mode of living in these cities become unbearable and thus affecting many incomes generatingprograms in these developing countries1(Lash, Scott & John Urry 2014, 107). In that connection,for clarity and precision, this particular case study report aims at critically analyzing pollutionthat has led to climatic changes in developing countries in African continent. We further narrowdown to two countries. That is, South Africa and Nigeria. Having selected the two developingcounties, this case study report will apply the concepts of sustainability event development so asto offer recommendation on this particular issue. Later on, the case study report will beimplemented to solve this particular scenario and as well in solving such similar scenarios inother developing countries all over the globe.It is important to note that both counties have the same growth rate in terms ofpopulation, gross domestic product, per capita income and infrastructure. From year 2015, thepopulation has been increasing in cities such as Cape Town in South Africa and Lagos inNigeria. A lot of people having been migrating from rural areas to cities so as to search forgreener pastures in the cities. This implies that, the level of unemployment in developingcounties make many citizens to migrate to urban centers for search of employment2(Jeffrey2016, 37). This in return results to over population in the cities due to inadequate housing in thecities. The other problem associated to overpopulation is pollution since the governments ofthese developing countries are unable to stress extra resources within the budget to resolve theissue of housing. They are also not able to mitigate the issue of pollution brought by overpopulation. In the long run, the release of wastes into the environment affects the population, the1Lash, Scott, and John Urry.Economies of Signs & Space.

3living conditions, climate and other many important aspects surrounding and associated to thecities.From the background narrated in the above scenario, the basis of our case study isformed clearly. Thus, we aim to analyze that case and offer the best recommendations so as tomitigate the problem. This will be of great importance to the residents of these cities, thegovernments, the citizens and other countries facing these problems3(Blewitt 2008, 116). Thecase study report will be very significant to international organizations dealing with environmentand climate. This is because it will form a basis for implementation of strategies and offer spacefor further future research in similar case and any other related scenario. The main reason for thechoice of this case scenario is to attempt to formulate strategies to solve the problem of pollutionthat result to climatic changes in developing counties. This is important so as to assist thecommunity in achieving long term goals in future development4(Cottrel 2008, 67). This case willas well make the world productive. This also assist in reducing the impacts of devastating effectson climatic changes that can shift on part of the world to another. Thus, this is a sustainable eventdevelopment that has a major take on the entire globe. This is a global issue rather than a oneman show.Literature reviewThere have been other case studies that have been conducted to solve many issues onsustainable event development. The previous case studies are very important as far as thisparticular case study is concerned. According to a case study formulated on the impact ofclimatic changes in Caribbean, the researchers were able to come up with mitigation strategieson climatic changes and pollution in Caribbean territory5(Dul & Halk 2008, 49). Such mitigationsinclude the “green effect” strategy that was applied to reduce negative impact of toxic gases3John, Blewitt.Understanding Sustainable Development.

4released by factories and manufacturing industries. Thus, in this case study, such as strategiescan be incorporated so as to come up with admirable recommendations.However, just like a research project, the previous case studies miss so gaps that needto be filled. A literature gap on the major causes of these underlying pollution and associatedclimate changes were not developed in the previous case study. Thus, the aim of this case studywill in a position to fill the asserted literature gaps.Discussion on pollution and climatic changes in Cape Town and LagosCape Town in South African and Lagos in Nigeria form major cities in developingcountries that are facing pollution and climatic changes. Due to lack of adequate measures todispose wastes in these cities are the main causes in that problem6(Mulvaney & Joliffe 2005, 101).Together with population that tend to increase heavily in these areas. According to annualdemographic census of 2016. The population in Cape Town is approximated to be 13 million. Onthe other hand, according to annual demographic Census of 2017, the population of Lagos inNigeria is approximated to be 11 million. This is far above the previous census on the populationof these cities. In Cape Town, the population from the previous census was 7million and 5.5million in Lagos Nigeria7(Sachs 2015, 79). The irony of this population growth rate is vested ongrowth rate in infrastructure. There has been insignificant development in infrastructure toabsorb the population increase in these cities. In that connection, the level of waste released inthe environment has been increasing in these cities8(Richard 2013, 129). The governments ofSouth Africa and Nigeria have not been able so set mechanism to dispose these wastes aspopulation increase.6Mulvaney & Joliffe.Academic writing: genres, samples, and resources.
