Abstract

This paper examines the issues of resources utilisation and how that affects the
environmental sustainability profile of Nigeria. The paper notes that Nigeria has a substantial amount
of human and material resources while the way and manner the resources are managed influences
environmental sustainability within the nation and at the world at large. It is observed that despite
numerous policy measures human and material resources are continuously wasted in Nigeria even as
the nation continues on a downward trend of poverty. The paper concludes that something drastic
needs to be done about how Nigeria manages its resources if sustainability must be attained.
