Environment is the sum total of the surroundings or geographical area a person, animal, or plants live and it includes natural forces (water, air and so on). These living and non living things constantly interact within the environment; emphasis is on the impact of humans on these components.

The impacts are of great importance economically, socially and in policy formulation. As such there is a need to constantly check and control the activities of man to reduce or eradicate negative consequences as it affects the environment
