Nile Choked by Plastic: South Sudan Faces Crisis

South Sudan’s lifeline, the Nile, is drowning in plastic waste, VOA reported in an article yesterday.

Community Action Against Plastic Waste warns the river is “bleeding red” with pollution, threatening people’s health and the river’s future, the text mentioned.

Heat waves could worsen the crisis, reducing water flow and sparking conflicts. The government acknowledges the urgency and talks of a global anti-plastic treaty, but locals rely on untreated Nile water and immediate action is needed.

Waste management, plastic reduction, and regular collection are crucial first steps to ensure the Nile’s survival, experts say.
