Environmental issues have assumed a global phenomenon in recent times, rapidly generating massive public concerns around the world, especially in the wake of the prevailing climate change challenges. It contributes substantially to the painful emergencies of many countries where more and more places are becoming helpless victims of one climate related disaster or another. In spite of the obvious ominous climate change challenges to the entire planet earth, many countries lack any plan to deal with emergencies, and worse still, refuse to abide by international treaties on climate change. Scientists are increasingly blaring out warnings, but the current reality is that much of the warnings are falling on deaf ears! This faculty seeks to attract attention to the nature and characteristics of these disasters to arouse public interest to explore how the world can better respond, manage and plan relief measures; while promoting long term feasible preventive solutions.
