Angola

Angola : Environmental Issues: 

Angola : Environmental Issues Topography Climate Climate in the north has cool, dry season (May to October) and hot, rainy season (November to April) Terrain: narrow coastal plain rises abruptly to vast interior plateau lowest point: Atlantic Ocean 0 m highest point: Morro de Moco 2,620 m

Angola : Environmental Issues: 

Angola : Environmental Issues Air : Low risk Localized air contamination may occur near specific industrial facilities or urban areas. Cement plant in Luanda emits dust and particulate into the air Soil: Localized to specific areas surrounding industrial facilities and waste disposal sites. Significant exposure to contaminants in soil is unlikely in the absence of wind-blown dust, active digging, or migration of contaminants from soil into ground water. Usually presents a low risk to human health. Ground travel throughout Angola is problematic due to the extensive use of land mines during the civil war

Angola: Environmental Issues: 

Angola: Environmental Issues Food: Food may be contaminated with industrial particulates, chemicals from soil, pesticides, fertilizers, and fecal pathogens Water: Water contaminated with raw sewage. Industrial discharge from oil and mining operations

Angola: Environmental Issues: 

Angola: Environmental Issues Greatest short-term environmental health risks: Water contaminated with raw sewage Runoff containing fecal pathogens
