    The sub-regional workshops - listed below - allowed for the sharing of good practices and the identification of bottlenecks and challenges as well as future options for Global International Waters Assessment book sub-region. The growing gap between North and South is also addressed, in terms not only of access to water and its quality, but also of the capacity to do research and implement solutions. This means that the assumptions could be refined with additional data, such as hazard date or other activities that could be undertaken. It was also observed from the questionnaire that a larger population of respondents in Onne, Okrika and Port Harcourt ports where conscious of the sources and effects of environmental pollution from their respective ports. These companies will have to bear the research costs alone.

    Downstream use is a part of the registration process. Phytoplankton Global International Waters Assessment book in the surface waters become concentrated along the boundaries of these eddies, tracing out the motions of the water. The chi-square test for independence was used with respondents from Onne port, Port Harcourt port and Okrika jetty. REACH Registration, Evaluation, and Authorization of Chemicals is a response to the opinion in the EU that the burden of proof of what chemicals are not safe is no longer on the authorities. It was also observed from the questionnaire that a larger population of respondents in Onne, Okrika and Port Harcourt ports where conscious of the sources and effects of environmental pollution from their respective ports. Measuring differences within each basin involves assessment of the transboundary nature of the issues and links between locations.
