Title:National Policy on Climate Change Given Nigeria’s status as a fossil-fuel dependent economy with a large climate sensitive agricultural sector, the development of a climate change policy and response strategy is critical; as climate change portends a serious threat to poverty eradication and sustainable development in general. One of the key pillars of the Vision 20:2020 is investment in low carbon fuels and renewable energy. Achieving the goal of low carbon, high growth and resilient socio-economic system for equitable and sustainable socio-economic and environmental development faces some challenges which include stability and sustainability of enabling environment, adequate institutional and human resources capacity and availability of adequate resources to address mitigation and adaptation initiatives to address climate change. Thus Government need to ensure that economic growth, resource management and climate change mitigation and adaptation can all happen simultaneously if this will be done effectively. Title: National Adaptation Strategy and Plan of Action on Climate Change for Nigeria (NASPA-CCN) December 2011 Nigeria’s climate is already changing. To prepare for and respond effectively to the impacts of climate change, adaptation is the key. Adaptation should be comprehensive and articulated in a way that recognizes the varying needs and vulnerabilities of all sections of the society. Accordingly, the Government of Nigeria and a number of civil society organizations embarked upon the development of National Adaptation Strategy and Plan of Action on Climate Change for Nigeria (NASPA-CNN).

  2. To whom it may concern,

    My name is Augustine Entonu and I am a PhD Researcher at the Sustainability Research Institute at the University of Leeds in the United Kingdom. I am conducting my Doctoral Research in the area of the domains of best practice, guidance, laws, policies and regulations that govern flaring of associated gas in Nigeria. I came to your website looking for relevant policies to inform the research and came across the two outlines above – as such, I am sending this to enquire:

    Do you have any other documentary information I can access on Nigerian Climate Change Policies – relevant to mitigation of greenhouse gas from the oil and gas sector?

    Thank you for your time.
