Assessment

Environmental assessment of Ogoniland: Site Factsheets, Executive Summary and Full report

This major independent scientific assessment – carried out by UN Environment and first published in 2011 – shows that pollution from over 50 years of oil operations in the region has penetrated further and deeper than many may have supposed. The assessment has been unprecedented. Over a 14-month period, the UN Environment team examined more than 200 locations, surveyed 122 kilometres of pipeline rights of way, reviewed more than 5,000 medical records and engaged over 23,000 people at local community meetings. The environmental restoration of Ogoniland could prove to be the world's most wide-ranging and long-term oil clean-up exercise ever undertaken if contaminated drinking water, land, creeks and important ecosystems such as mangroves are to be brought back to full, productive health. The report’s key findings are alarming both in terms of human health protection and environmental protection.

In 2018, building on its 2011 environmental assessment of Ogoniland, UN Environment began a new project that aims to strengthen the Hydrocarbon Pollution Remediation Project (HYPREP) and its Governing Council, so that they can discharge their responsibilities better and clean up oil contamination in Ogoniland.
