Welcome Note By The Director, Department of Climate Change
I welcome you to the website of the Department of Climate Change ‘Gateway to National Action on Climate Change’ it is the official information hub on climate change in Nigeria. We will strive to update the site with current information about what government is doing on climate change in Nigeria at all levels.
Recognising the consequences and adverse impact of climate change on Nigeria, the country joined the global community to adopt treaties meant to tackle climate change. Nigeria became a Party to the UNFCCC in 1992 and ratified the Convention in 1994, it also became a Party to the Kyoto Protocol in 2004. Nigeria ratified the Paris Agreement (PA) in March 2017, which was approved by the UNFCCC on the 16th May 2017 and entered into force on 15th June 2017.
Due to the importance attached to the issues of climate change and global warming, and in view of the enormity of activities required for the implementation of the climate change treaties to which Nigeria is a Party, the Federal Government of Nigeria established the Department of Climate Change in the Federal Ministry of Environment to serve as the vehicle for driving National Climate Action efforts/actions.
