appreciative_tree here,

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 ?

    inspirational_artist here, I live in Lebanon which is also considered an LDC, and I assure you the same effects happened in my country, during the lockdown, the air pollution noticeably decreased, the landscape was greener than I have ever noticed and the sea became crystal clear but, as soon as the lockdown was lifted, you could see face masks and gloves thrown aside the roads, consequently, it was clear that all the positive effects of the lockdown were reversed. Aside from that, at the beginning of the lockdown, the covid cases started to decrease but came back up after it was lifted, thus, in my opinion, what happened in Uganda and Lebanon is also occurring in all LDCs and this has to be put to an end, hence I suggest that all LDCs should start implementing laws and plans to build back greener by increasing the reliance on renewable energy and encouraging the implementation of recycling systems.

        I totally agree, as we can all see, covid was nothing less than a lesson that taught us all, how unprepared LDCs are, with deaths increasing daily, and hospitals getting filled up, I think solutions for pollution should be undergoing implementation as soon as possible. One solution to pollution actually popped up on my screen while I was scrolling on a social media platform, it was an organization that would go and clean rivers globally and by the end of the cleaning process, the river will be pollution-free, and these results actually impressed me and I think a solution for countries to start with is providing support for organizations such as this one, with the government being busy handling the global pandemic, it won't be able to also provide the necessary attention for pollution, but providing support such as providing money, food, transportation, and security to these organizations and even exempt them from taxes will allow them to provide all the care and attention to stopping pollution as much as possible.

    My opinion as trustworthy_leaf being a fellow proud Ugandan I agree that the air pollution by vehicles reduced but was replaced by the increase of deforestation. I also agree that immediately after lockdown was lifted everything went back to how they were before like as if Covid-19 never happened. But I just want to add on that companies were shutdown, they lost money and market so they collapsed and that resulted into loss of jobs. Some of the people who lost jobs had children so when school for candidates was opened some children never returned to school despite the fact that the government told schools to reduce on school fees due to the difficult times people were in. This creates another point that schools suffered since most schools were running on less than half the normal budget since school fees was reduced and it was only candidates returning to school and they also had to install SOP's - Standard Operating Procedures in order to be allowed to reopen.

    With regard to pollution, the rate of air pollution and noise pollution has decreased as the curfew has contributed to the environment becoming cleaner, and the percentage of waste in the streets and neighborhoods has significantly decreased, which indicates that people and their actions are primarily responsible for environmental pollution

        Hello on behalf of glad grapefruit, i would like to give these examples :The disposal plastic bottles, plastic bags , masks before and after the pandemic has a huge impact on the environment as they reduce on the soil fertility since they cant decompose leading to poor soils where plants and trees grow which enhance the climate of an area in summary people are primarily responsible for environmental pollution.
        Us humans we use vehicles which give off CO which is poisonous gas to the environment hence polluting the environment.

    Hey, appreciative_tree. I too live in Kampala and I have some sort of love-hate feelings towards COVID19. On one hand the pandemic stopped jobs from operating- jobs that pollute the environment on a daily basis. And when factories that produced fumes stopped operating, I kind of felt happy about the clean air that we were enjoying. I also felt happy for animals that had been from poaching and other bad practices that take place in LDC's as a result of unrestricted movements in the parks. Animals were free from poaching or displacement because of the restricted movement of people. I love animals and from the first time I saw that poor polar bear standing on a meltling sheet of ice and I find images of people dumping loads of plastic waste onto the road disturbing. That's why I appreciated the lockdown. On the bad side though, back in May (the month when the virus finally touched down in my home country, Uganda), people lost many lives primarily because Uganda is a LDC and we didn't have enough money to afford the medications and medical facilities to treat the severe Covid19 cases. That said, I hope we can take some of the good things from the pandemic and keep doing them to restore our planet.

    I live in Uganda. In my village, soil pollution greatly reduced since movement of people was restricted.
    So, there were no plastics in people's gardens enabling the soil to gain enough fertility to support growth of crops now.

    Good morning,

    I, as a Ugandan citizen, have realized that COVID-19 has not only had good impacts on the environment, but also bad ones. COVID-19 has reduced the rate of both air pollution and deforestation through the lockdown.
    But still, it has now proved to be a danger to the environment. For the first months of lockdown, the rate of improper waste disposal reduced . But, as the demand for masks, gloves and other plastics increased, so did the rate of waste disposal. As we all know, masks and gloves are non-biodegradable materials and they spoil the chemical structure and composition of soil.
    As time went, people begun ignoring the lockdown more and more. They had stopped taking it seriously since the death rate had reduced. This led to increased usage of cars and public transport and therefore, the air pollution rate has gone back to its original state before the lockdown and is slowly becoming even worse. Also, most people who live in rural areas depend on wood fuel to do most things like cooking so these people have cut down trees to get charcoal and firewood.
    According to me, another lockdown should be imposed to control the rising levels of environmental degradation.
    As for the excessive use of wood fuel, the government should provide electricity in rural areas. In that way, people will use electricity for cooking instead of wood fuel and therefore, there will be less deforestation.

        Hello I would like to give some examples on how another environmental lockdown would help reduce on environmental degradation.
        Another lockdown will restrict the movement of people so pollution of masks and gloves will be reduced .
        Movement of cars will also be reduced so less CO gas will be given off to the environment.

    In Cape Town we experienced some rebellious behavior towards certain restrictions which government implemented. The Ban on Alcohol Sales was not taking with a good heart. Stores were vandalized and lots of unnecessary burning of stores etc. University students burnt down half of their campuses. All of these reckless behavior patterns most definitely contributed to our pollution problem.
    We have many residential areas which are located near industrialized areas and during lockdown, the residents could enjoy the absents of the noise and air pollution. Lockdown brought about positive day to day living.

    It is very much back to normal these days. Shops and beaches are crowded again. Industrialized areas are back in full operation. Backed up traffic during peak hours. So, the human contribution to pollution is in full swing again.

    Hi, modest_analysis here, your post is incredible! I'm from Hong Kong, and indeed air pollution and crowded streets are an enormous problem here. During our lockdown and during COVID-19 waves, everyone stays at home because of the fear of catching the deadly virus. From what I've seen from my house's windows, air pollution has gradually reduced in the air around the mountains I live in. Also, the constant beeping of cars and screaming tires have totally disappeared for some period of time. But when the lockdown was lifted, when I walk on the streets all I see are masks and stray drops of sanitiser everywhere. Streets are filthy and the street cleaners are risking their lives to help us. I think we should seriously do something about all of this filth and germs. I just wish that the government would apply stricter rules for hygiene on streets and make our environment a cleaner, greener and healthier one.

    The global pandemic last year was caused by the coronavirus. The definition of a pandemic according to the Oxford’s Learner’s Dictionary, is a disease that spreads over a whole country or the world, and that’s exactly what the coronavirus did. The ravaging disease left no country or continent spared. Even the world’s largest MDCs (most developed countries) could barely cope with the disease and the LDCs (least developed countries) found it even harder to survive.
    Imagining how tough it could be during that period for the LDCs couldn’t be that hard. Daily, without the disease, due to bad management or insufficient labor force, most areas of the LCDs find it hard to cope with the struggles of the modern world and they are often left behind in all developments, because as saying goes, “time waits for no one”. The impact of the pandemic can never be underestimated as it was very clear and obvious to see. Not only did it affect the lives of families by taking one, two, or all members of a family but it also caused many nations to enter a severe recession.
    When the disease first started to spread around, every country found it very difficult to deal with, most especially the LCDs, it took the lives of many people in the LCDs due to lack of quality medical personnel to not only educate as many people as possible about the virus but to also reduce the impact of it on the lives of people. Health-wise, another reason why it affected the LCDs so much is because of the lack of quality medical equipment to deal with and help contain the virus. Another reason why is because of ignorance, ignorance is a very big issue in all areas of our society today and it was no surprise when people carried that attitude into the pandemic period. They knew about the virus, they knew about the most effective preventive methods and they chose to not obey it which undoubtedly cost them their lives.
    The economic impact was unbearable for some, it felt like their countries had just started over again from the beginning of time. Several people lost their jobs due to reasons that they were not even accounted for. As a result of the increase in unemployment, the countries experienced a significant decrease in the labor force, lesser hands equal more work to be done. It understandably wasn’t the fault of their government as many had a very short time to prepare for it and as a result of that, the impact of the pandemic hit them drastically. It is undeniable that as at the time of their budget preparation and completion for the year 2020, the medical sector wasn’t at the top of their list, they had planned to invest the budget elsewhere but little did they know that the pandemic had other plans for them which made them see a big step backward in their plans of development.
    In conclusion, as we are beginning to get what we call our “normal lives” and “normal world”, it is important that we take home a major lesson that we got from the pandemic period which is, we should stop the habit of ignorance. As we have seen, it took the lives of not only the poor but the rich as well, ignorance at times could more damaging than some diseases that we see and experience around, we should learn to listen and obey advice given to us by our parents, teachers, religious preachers, healthcare workers, the government, etc. Obedience can go a very long way in helping LDCs develop at a faster pace than they have experienced in the past.

      A very thoughtful comment, ethical_argument, thank you for sharing it. I think it's fair to say there is ignorance in all countries among some people, and that's why it's so important for governments to run educational campaigns to convince people of the safety of vaccines, and the need to follow the guidance.

    I strongly agree with this post, and I definitely think of my country as an LCD. The corona virus pandemic really got to every one of us, our friends, families and even more and our government could not even do anything about it. Instead, the palliatives given to the citizens was embezzled by our politicians, meanwhile, everyone was dying .I cannot even begin to count the number of knocks I heard on the door each day begging for food. I mean the government cause the problem of LDC's and the citizens are not any better because we choose to sit and watch all of these happen.
    I believe that if the government are able to change, the people would not have to suffer from pandemics like this.

    In 2019 to 2021 when covid19 was newly discovered and cases of covid started rising it became the first priority of all countries affected by this pandemic especially in LDC's to find a solution to cure it
    The pandemic adds yet another shock to the multiple challenges that more than a billion people living in LDC's already face day to day life .The covid19 has affected LDC's through inadequate hospitals and equipment for treatment:
    In the LDC's there are not adequate hospitels and equipment to treat patience and even if there where, there are not enough doctors in the country
    so when cases of covid rose in LDC's a lot of lives where taken because of inadequate hospital,equipment to cure patience and inadequate doctors further more covid19 has affected work in LDC's:covid19 has affect LDC's such as Ghana to reduce wages for over770,000 workers,and caused about 42,00 loyoffs making life difficult for them
    But however it is time for people in LDC's to stick to the safety rules of the pandemic and stay safe

    I think the racism between MDC and LDC is one of the reasons of having climate change. Nature of the earth can not change without the human behaviors. The most MDC s have factories of weapons which are the market of building wars and The LDCs are the buyers or customers to use those weapons to kill at the wars as middle east . I feel if there is peace on the earth that means a green peace with no wars and equal healthy life for all wiithout racism between rich and poor countries . I wonder why there is no climate change in the ancient civilization in that time?

    Well if I am being honest in Jamaica, because of lockdown there have been fewer people on the road. Pretty much most of the country shut down, and no one was allowed to go to work. A lot of people lost their jobs. The poverty rate that the government just brought down to its record low skyrocketed back up. There was a significant decline in the agricultural sector because of the lockdown with hotels. The reason why is because most Jamaican farmers sell most of their crops to the hotels so they incurred a big loss. A positive is that there are fewer cars on the road so fewer emissions in the atmosphere so less air pollution. So other than that people in Jamaica don't really wear a mask at all, there may be a select few that actually wear masks. So that is how the pandemic has affected my country.

    Hi, it's respectful_guineapig !
    we all know that covid-19 had a lot of bad compacts but did you know that it also had some good ones ?
    when covid started getting worse , we went on a lock down and we hadn't use our cars a lot and even the factories didn't work so there was less fumes , the air was clean and people didn't pollute like they used to do before the lock down because they couldn't go out and it was one of the reasons that the ozone layer healed and the animals felt safer and happier they have started taking adventange of cities during the corona virus pandemic .From New Delhi , India to Buenos Aires , Argintina , groups of animals including deer and lemurs have started to come out to explore ,in search of food or just to play . A lot of teachers and students got used to technology by learning online and by communicating with their friends , we learned how to protect ourselves ; we washed our hands more than 3 times a day and we used the hand sanitizer a lot ... And because we got bored so we've tried a lot of new things like cooking , dancing , singing , drawing and fabricating , we became so creative ! we had moments with our families that we couldn't have them before because we were so busy by working or studying , we also made online friends and that was so good !
    a lot of people were focusing on the negative and bad compacts that covid caused but they forgot that it also had a lot of positve changes in the world that we needed to know !

Most private schools were shutdown because they could not fund for themselves and the teachers lost their jobs. Many of them had to look for new job opportunities whereas some resorted to masking masks to earn a living.

    The Corona crisis affected the environment in various regions of the world, and my country, Palestine, is no exception
    In Palestine, the environment lived
    Refreshing its states since the closure period
    For example, here on the coast of Gaza, the sea water became cleaner this summer than in previous years, and also in the mountains of the West Bank, endangered animals such as the Palestinian gazelle and the partridge spread
    Also, some wild plants spread that were few in previous years, such as hibiscus, chicory, and akob
    We do not have much air pollution here in Palestine, so we can say that the closure and the Corona crisis have a great positive impact on the land and sea side more than the air side.

Because of the coronavirus ,which brought the lockdown , made people stay indoors so people could not get the chance to go on tourism. So I will say COVID 19 has brought dangerous effects on LDC's

    Covid in some ways is bad but some ways is good. Covid has helped the air pollution, the environment and to help plants grow. The councils in some places have planted new trees to help the environment and to make places there greener and more enjoyable because of the type of plants there are. In some busy city's/towns Covid has helped by restricting the amount of travel and that has helped because then there is less air pollution.

There is less pollution in the air ,the trees are growing better and it helps plants like the eucalyptus leaves in Australia grow so that the animals there can eat them like koalas, the wild fires in Australia are growing and putting koalas out of homes and there lungs are getting full of smoke the hot weather there is really bad and really had for the koalas to handle some baby kolas are found alone in trees .

    Many people aren't reacting to climate change in the same way they did to Covid-19, because it doesn't physically affect them. By this it means people are procastinating around the idea of climate change, and are just brushing off the factual evidence of what it can and will do to the environment around us. Overall people need to realise how big of a deal climate change is, and react to it with the same urgency as the did Covid-19, as it will affect us for longer and have a bigger impact on the lives after us compared to Covid-19.
