Society for Planet and Prosperity to Unveil Groundbreaking Report on Climate Impact and Policies in Nigeria’s Subnational Regions

In a collaborative effort involving the Society for Planet and Prosperity (SPP), the Department of Climate Change, the Federal Ministry of Environment, and the Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF), a comprehensive survey and subsequent report on climate change across Nigeria’s 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) is set to be revealed in an upcoming high-level meeting.

Titled “Mapping Climate Change Impact, Policy, and Action in Nigeria’s 36 States and Federal Capital Territory (FCT),” this report aims to extensively outline the ramifications of climate change across various regions, analyze existing state-level climate policies and actions, evaluate online visibility, and discern the specific support requirements essential for effective implementation of climate change policies, attracting crucial funds and investments.

Professor Chukwumerije Okereke, President of SPP and the principal convener, emphasized the pressing nature of this initiative, stating,

“One of the biggest development challenges facing Nigeria today is climate change.”

Its multifaceted effects, ranging from erosion to sea level rise, have not only disrupted livelihoods and ecosystems but have also exacerbated poverty levels across the nation.

Despite federal efforts such as the National Climate Change Policy and flagship projects like NEWMAP and the Great Green Wall, there’s been a critical oversight in addressing climate issues at the state level. This oversight is crucially detrimental as local communities bear the brunt of climate change impacts.

The impending report’s significance lies in its illumination of the subnational climate change governance landscape, including the level of awareness, accessibility, scope, and implementation of policies across different states and the FCT.

The report’s conclusions, to be discussed at the high-level gathering, aim not only to raise awareness but also to catalyze state-level climate investment, action, and policy formulation.

Experts and facilitators will converge to deliberate on these conclusions and explore avenues for fostering partnerships that can drive coordinated action and knowledge sharing among stakeholders at the subnational level.

This survey marks the first comprehensive mapping of climate action at Nigeria’s subnational level, providing invaluable insights tailored to each region’s unique requirements.

As such, it serves as a crucial catalyst for governmental, civil society, private sector, and foreign donor agencies to enhance their climate change strategies.

Given the remote nature of the event, interested participants are encouraged to register at bit.ly/SubnationalClimateMapping to be part of this pivotal discussion shaping Nigeria’s climate action at the grassroots level.
