The dirtiest countries in the world

It seems to you that the ecology in the region where you and your family live leaves much to be desired? Municipal services in time do not take out garbage, and local industrial enterprises emit an enormous amount of toxic substances into the atmosphere every day? We want to console you: some states are so polluted that the state of your city in comparison with them may seem like a benchmark of sterility. However, there is nothing to rejoice, because we all are inhabitants of one planet, which every year becomes more and more like a global dump.

We present you the top 10 of the dirtiest countries in the world, in which the environment has endured almost an environmental disaster for many years.

10. Libya

This Islamic state is located on the African continent. Ecology problems are primarily associated with the extraction of oil and natural gas. Secondly, the fact that in Libya, after the overthrow of the legitimate authority, a civil war has been going on for already a year, plays a huge role in the pollution of the environment.In such conditions, the work of public utilities is severely complicated, because of which systematically interruptions in the supply of drinking water and timely garbage collection occur.

9. India

India is a very densely populated state (ranks second after the PRC in terms of population). The capital - New Delhi is one of the leading positions on Earth in terms of pollution. This applies to the state of the rivers, air and soil.

The country is experiencing a shortage of fresh water, and the one that arrives to residents is of very poor quality. The streets of Indian suburbs are littered with garbage. In addition, a large amount of greenhouse gas emissions is recorded here, which also adversely affects the environment as a whole.

The reasons for this state of affairs in this country are considered to be a very small per capita income, a low level of education and a particular mentality of the indigenous people.

8. Nepal

In this country, the difficult ecological situation is connected with the poor performance of city services that cannot cope with the abundance of rubbish on the streets. The low economic development of Nepal and the relatively high population density are the factors that make this small country turn into one big landfill.

7. UAE

In the United Arab Emirates, the problem of air pollution has long been acute, due to the work of the oil industry. This environmental poisoning factor is characteristic of almost all countries of this region.

Unfortunately, at the moment, no measures to protect the environment from toxic emissions in this country do not lead to proper results, so it is still at the leading positions in the ranking of the “dirtiest” countries.

6. Cameroon

In this country, the problem of creating spontaneous landfills has reached the level of ecological disaster. Piles of garbage that are not properly treated are poisoning the environment. In addition, the city streets of Cameroon are also overwhelmed with waste, which utilities are in no hurry to dispose of.

5. Kuwait

Almost the entire economy of this country is built around the extraction and export of petroleum products. According to experts, Kuwait owns 10% of the world's total supply of "black gold". An average of 165 million tons of oil is extracted here annually, which naturally cannot have a positive impact on the overall environmental situation in the region.

The threat to the environment is not only directly oil, but also the method of storing fuel. After all, while oil is waiting for shipment, it often spontaneously ignites. In this case, an enormous amount of harmful compounds enters the air.

4. Bangladesh

This country, unfortunately, has a stable name for the “region of ecological and social disaster”. More than a third of the country's population is below the poverty line, considering that Bangladesh has the largest population density on the planet.

The unsatisfactory work of the communal structures is due to the difficult economic situation. There are piles of garbage on the streets, a critical degree of gas pollution in cities, low quality of drinking water.

In addition, in Bangladesh, there are about three hundred enterprises for the manufacture of leather products. When working with this type of raw material, outdated technologies are used here. Therefore, toxic waste products are released just like that into the surrounding space, without the use of any preliminary measures aimed at disinfecting harmful substances.

3. Egypt

The capital of the state - Cairo occupies one of the leading positions in the ranking of the most unfavorable for cities on the planet. The eastern part of the city is recognized by experts as an ecological disaster zone. The huge territories turned into spontaneous dumps are to blame. In areas where waste disposal takes place (in the most primitive manner), the air is saturated with poisonous gases.

The official government does not properly solve the problem of "littered" cities. In addition, an important role is played by the fact that the mentality of the Egyptians is designed so that the majority of the population is not at all concerned about the presence of a huge amount of garbage on the streets. Waste locals can just throw at his feet, not bringing to the urn. On the streets of Egyptian cities you can often see bags of garbage, which are not in the garbage can, but in the middle of the pavement.

2. Qatar

According to environmentalists, this Muslim state is a leader in the concentration of toxic carbon emissions. The water that flows from the tap, here called "liquid electricity", because of the desalination of sea water, which is typical for neighboring states.By the way, residents receive water and electricity for free, which is inconceivable for our compatriots.

Also significant damage to the environment cause numerous air conditioners, which are installed not only on buildings, but also in public transport and on the street.

1. Saudi Arabia

As in most countries of the Persian Gulf, oil in Saudi Arabia is the main source of budget replenishment. Therefore, a large amount of toxic substances associated with the extraction and processing of “black gold” is emitted daily into the atmosphere.

Most of the country's population live in coastal regions, which is why most household waste falls directly into the ocean, resulting in the massive death of rare coral reefs.
