An Appraisal of Goal 7 of the Millennium Development Goals of the United Nations VIS-À-VIS the Implementation of the 2011 United Nations Environment Programme Report on the Environmental Assessment of Ogoni Land in Nigeria and the Activities of the Hydro



The paper is an appraisal of goal 7 of the millennium development goals of the United Nations (MDGs) in the light of the purported ongoing implementation of the 2011 United Nations Environment Programme Report (UNEP) on the environmental assessment of Ogoni land in Nigeria being carried out by the Hydrocarbon Remediation Project (HYPREP). The paper argues that there exists a nexus between the particulars of the UNEP report, goal 7 of the MDGs and the urgent need on the part of HYPREP to timeously and properly work on the findings contained in the UNEP report on Ogoni land to avert further environmental degradations, massive deaths and other health challenges on the indigenous peoples of Ogoni land in Nigeria, west Africa.  In achieving its aim, this paper adopts an admixture of the historical, comparative, empirical, the law and development approaches, in relevant areas. The paper is concluded and a set of recommendations made.

Keywords: Appraisal, Goal 7 of the Millennium Development Goals, United Nations, Implementation, United Nations Environment Programme Report (UNEP), Assessment, Ogoni land, Nigeria, Hydrocarbon Remediation Project (HYPREP).
