What are LDC's ?
LDC's are less developed countries that are still developing and rely on the high developed countries. As we know, the PANDEMIC affected the whole world in various ways both positive and negative.
We all know what problems were faced by the HDC's like USA,China etc. But less was known about the LDC .
My Opinions on how the pandemic had an impact on the enironment of the LDC's.
DURING THE LOCKDOWN
In my country Uganda before the pandemic, there was big problem of Air Pollution which had made living near roads very difficult as the vehicles would give off gases not suitable for people and the environment. But when lockdown was imposed and movement restricted, there was less movement and due to less cars on the roads air pollution reduced.
There was another prblem related to the problem above that is , the vehicles would give off oils and grease hence polluting the environment. During the pandemic, the use of fuels greatly reduced as there was less movement of the people hece preserving the minerals like crude oil which had become expensive.
The pandamic also affected the LDC in a way that there was less plastic pollution since the people had to stay at home therefore reducing the pollution.
AFTER LOCKDOWN WAS REMOVED
After the lockdown, The roads started to be crowded again and everything became the way it was before the pandemic and it was like nothing happened.
After the lockdown, the usage of masks and gloves had increased in fear of getting the covid 19.
More greenary was experienced according to me in my country.
CONCLUSION ON HOW THE PANDEMIC HAD AN IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT OF THE LDC'S
Air pollution had decreased but returned back to what it was.
More trees had grown and the environment looked beautiful.
The environment has got polluted with masks and plastics.
Uganda is an LDC and and as a part of this country and i experienced some of this impacts on the environment and i would say that they were not pleasant except from some positive impacts which i may have left out.
What impacts on the environment by the pandemic did you Experience in your country ?
