A WELCOME NOTE FROM THE ACTING DIRECTOR
I am delighted to welcome you to our website. This is the official gateway of information on climate change in Nigeria, serving all levels of government and stakeholders. As you may have noticed, our new website is easier to read and navigate, and also much easier for us to update. This means that we will be able to add fresh news and update you with information about what government is doing at all levels, what you need to know and what you can do, on a regular basis.
Due to the importance attached to the issue of climate change and global warming, and in view of the enormity of activities required for the implementation of the Climate Change Convention and the Kyoto Protocol, the Federal Government established the Department of Climate Change in the Ministry of Environment to serve as the vehicle for driving National Climate Change Efforts.
Climate Change has become a critical issue, both for its global importance and threats to Nigeria and her people. For instance, we have the desertification process advancing southward and potential submergence of the 853 kilometers stretch of coastline along the Atlantic Ocean. For these and many other reasons, we can’t but continue to implement both the Climate Change Convention, related Kyoto Protocol and our local efforts and initiatives at combating the threats of Climate Change and warnings of global warming.
