Abstrakt
W niniejszym artykule zbadano środowiskowe zachowania sanitarne mieszkańców różnych stref w Osogbo w Nigerii. Wydzielone strefy mieszkalne to strefy tradycyjna, przejściowa i podmiejska. Wykorzystując systematyczną technikę doboru próby, dokonano wyboru 194 respondentów do badań. Wyniki badań ukazały, że społeczno-gospodarcze warunki mieszkańców różniły się znacznie w zależności od strefy, a ponadto, że we wszystkich strefach występował słaby dostęp do infrastruktury i urządzeń sanitarnych. Podobnie, niski był odsetek mieszkańców posiadających urządzenia sanitarne w swoich domach. Zgodnie z wynikami badań, mieszkańcy w słabym stopniu wykorzystują dostępne urządzenia w ramach środowiskowych zachowań sanitarnych. W artykule przedstawiono rekomendacje dotyczące wyposażenia przez mieszkańców ich gospodarstw domowych w urządzenia sanitarne, a także zapewnienia takich urządzeń komunalnych przez rząd oraz organizacje społecznościowe (ang.: Community Based Organizations, CBOs). Niezbędna jest ponadto edukacja środowiskowa oraz egzekwowanie regulacji środowiskowych. (abstrakt oryginalny)

This paper examined residents' environmental sanitation practices across different residential zones of Osogbo, Nigeria. The stratified residential zones are the traditional zone, the transition zone and the sub-urban zone. A total of 194 residents were selected for survey using systematically sampling technique. The study revealed that residents' socio-economic characteristics varied significantly with different residential zones. Findings revealed that there is low level of access to environmental sanitation facilities across the residential zones. Similarly, the proportion of residents with environmental sanitation facilities in their homes was low. The study established poor environmental sanitation practices among the residents in terms of utilization of available amenities across the residential zones. It recommended the provision of environmental sanitation facilities in homes by residents and communal provision of facilities by government and Community Based Organizations (CBOs), environmental education and also the enforcement of environmental regulations in the city and others with similar setting.
