Public education and programs where they exist lacks required exposure, intensity, and connection to correct the apathetic outlook of most urban residents to waste disposal. Paper strongly affirm the need for adequate funding, equipment, human resources, technology and energy use required in dealing with urban metamorphic forces sustaining waste generation. And in conclusion suggests for success to be achieved, a holistic program that integrates technology, socio-cultural, economic, and psychological factors needed in managing urbanization and wastes, in order to boost the positive impact of urban metamorphosis on the continent's cities' sanitation and development.
