The National Council on Climate Change (NCCC) and Climate Action Africa (CAA) have partnered to address the pressing challenges of climate change in Nigeria.

The partnership was solidified with the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) at the NCCC office in Abuja.

Representatives from both organisations were present at the signing, including Salisu Dahiru, director-general of NCCC; Grace Mbah, co-founder and executive director of CAA; and Michael Ivenso, director of energy, transportation and infrastructure at NCCC.

The collaboration aims to unify efforts in addressing Nigeria’s vulnerability to the impacts of climate change.

Speaking during the MoU signing, Dahiru said the collaboration aims to promptly address vulnerabilities and work towards sustainable solutions for the nation.

“Our collaboration with Climate Action Africa is a pivotal step towards building a climate-resilient Nigeria,” he said.

“According to the 2021 Notre Dame global adaptation index, Nigeria is ranked as the 53rd most vulnerable and 179th most ready country to adapt to climate change.

“The country faces significant challenges from extreme weather events such as droughts, floods, erosion, and rising sea levels. These risks particularly threaten sectors like agriculture, water resources, public health, and settlements.”

On her part, Mbah said Nigeria’s vulnerability to climate change necessitates immediate and collective action.

“Through this partnership, we aspire to harness the power of innovation, sustainable practices, policy dialogue, and community engagement to reshape Nigeria’s future and set a global example,” she said.
