While exploring the new forms of pollution in Africa, this study also focuses on the 2006 toxic dumping incident in Cote d’Ivoire viewed by commentators as the biggest scandal of the 21st century. Looks at the incident from a human rights approach considering the linkages between the human rights suffering and the environment and also the right to enjoy the best attainable state of physical and mental health.
