Rosemary Ndidiamaka Ene
Abstract—This paper examined the environmental hygiene in the Nigeria urban cities. The paper observed the poor hygiene and the problems of Nigeria urban cities and identified the problems that have aided the poor hygiene of the urban cities as; i) poor town planning implementation, ii) improper waste management and disposal, iii) poor sanitation, iv) overcrowding and v) poor ventilation. These conditions have serious adverse impacts on the health of the urban dwellers. The paper also suggested strategies for improving the environmental hygiene of the Nigerian urban cities, for healthy living and sustainable urban growth and development. The paper again used graphical representations to show water availability and sources to ascertain the poor sanitation and hygiene of the urban cities.

Index Terms—Environmental hygiene, overcrowding, sanitation, ventilation.
