The overall goal is to provide high and medium level advocacy on the imperatives of mainstreaming climate change to national and sub-national development plans and to provide practical guidance to policy makers and champions at the three tiers of Government and non state actors on how climate change adaptation can be mainstreamed into development plans and strategies as part of overarching measures to deal with the impending threats of climate change.

Title: Climate Change and Sustainable Development in Nigeria (From Durban through Rio to Doha: National Report for Cop 18/cmp 8) (November, 2012):

There is broad scientific consensus that climate change is already a serious challenge and is likely to happen more quickly than was expected to. This report is the fourth in the series of national reports for Nigeria’s participation in COP meetings since the famous COP 15 in Copenhagen, Denmark in 2009.  This is to acquaint and update Nigerians on the status of global climate negotiations and inform them on the country’s role and participation in global efforts and negotiations towards establishing a stable climate regime.

The World Health Organization has recognized that climate change is an emerging threat to global health security, and that the global health community should organize itself for concerted actions to protect vulnerable populations. Among the decision was “Development and transfer of technologies under the subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technology Advice”.

Title:Low-Carbon Development Opportunities for Nigeria (©2013 international Bank for Reconstruction and Development/The World Bank)

Nigeria has the ambition, as enshrined in the Vision 20:2020 strategy, to become one of the world’s 20 largest economies by the year 2020. Some observers believed this objective cannot be met without damage to the national or global environment. The analysis of low-carbon development options in Nigeria was undertaken during a period of more than two years and involved the preparation of a number of sector-specific background reports. This book identifies a number of specific actions the Nigeria can undertake to move toward a model of development that reduces carbon emissions while at the same time spurring growth.

 Title:Nigeria’s First National Communication under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (November 2003):

Over the past few decades, Nigeria, like many other parts of the world have been beset by a lot of climatic anomalies with serious consequences on the society. Nigeria is located within the tropics and thus experiences high temperature throughout the year. The climate of the country varies from a very wet coastal area to the Sahel region in the north western and north eastern parts. The emission of GHG in Nigeria is generally low based on low per capita energy and other resources consumption in the country. Uncertainties regarding climate change will most likely be in terms of magnitude rather than of direction. The more significant uncertainties pertain to temperature and temperature related parameters in respect of which the expected changes are relatively large.

Title:Nigeria: Climate Change Vulnerabilities and Implications for Peace and Security (October, 2012, Clean Energy Consult)

That climate change has gained great momentum. That climate change poses one of the key challenges for global economic development and human well-being is now beyond doubt. Climate change may put peace and security at risk through increased scarcity of natural resource such as water, food and energy. It will be more difficult to achieve peace and security in the face of increased conditions as a result of climate change. In terms of climate change, the Niger Delta region and the North are generally highly vulnerable, driven by high exposure to biophysical and socio-economic aspects of climate change.

 Title:Towards Durban Cop 17: Nigeria’s Initiatives For Climate Change Response:

Extreme weather events have become more frequent in recent years in Nigeria. Recent major flood disasters witnessed in many parts of the country have demonstrated the vulnerability of the country to climate change induced extreme weather events with long-term return period. Over 102 lives were lost in the August 2011 Ibadan flood of 30 years return period, while Lagos remained completely still for a few days in July 2011 as a result of continuous high intensity rainfall over a period of 24 hours. Nigeria is a key partner in the “Green Wall Initiative”, which will establish a “green wall” of trees to reverse deforestation and secure agriculture and livelihoods across the Sudano-Sahelian zone of the country.
