Today, Monday 15th of January 2018, the Nigerian NTA TV will broadcast the 30 minute documentary produced by the BRS Conventions , WECFand WEP and made by filmmaker Laure Poinsot, entitled “What has Gender got to do with Chemicals?”.
In Africa’s most populated country, Nigeria, with its almost 200 million inhabitants, toxic pollution from waste is yet another challenge to society, economy and security. Nigerian NTA TV will broadcast the documentary which analyses how waste is leading to toxic pollution in Nigeria and highlights the solutions women and men are working on.
The film shows how women and men are impacted by toxic pollution from waste and chemicals – partly imported illegally from Europe and America – while it visits the hidden e-waste markets and waste dumps around the country.
