Climate Change is real.

Act today, so that We can have a better tomorrow.

Nigeria and Climate Change

Nigeria is highly vulnerable to climate change. The 2014 World Climate Change Vulnerability Index, published by the global risk analytics company Verisk Maplecroft, classifies Nigeria as one of the ten most vulnerable countries in the world. Extreme events and weather variability such as droughts, floods, erosion and sea-level rise all impact the nation. The agriculture, water resources, public health, and settlements sectors are particularly vulnerable to climate change.

National Policy on Climate Change

The vision of the National Policy on Climate Change is a climate change resilient Nigeria for rapid and sustainable socio-economic development. Its mission is to strengthen national initiatives to adapt to and mitigate climate change in a participatory manner involving all sectors of Nigerian society, including the poor and other vulnerable groups (women, youth etc.) within the overall context of advancing sustainable socio-economic development in Nigeria.

What is Energy Transition?

Energy transition refers to the global shift from fossil fuel-based energy systems to low-carbon and renewable energy sources.



Since human activities are at the root of the climate challenge, it simply means that the same human actions can help to stop it. We must continue to play our part to save our planet from the dangers of climate change.
