Govt to begin campaign on climate change adaptationNigeria
Following recent incidents of floods across the country, the Federal Government says it would begin a sensitization campaign to educate the public on climate change adaption, mitigation and its impacts on the country.
Permanent Secretary of the Ecological Fund office Mrs. Ibukun Odusote said a national sensitization campaign would kick off with a Stakeholders Forum from November 22-23 in Akure, Ondo State.
At a media briefing organized by the office in Abuja, yesterday, Mrs. Odusote said the campaign would enable the public to take proactive measures to protect their environment to forestall a reoccurrence of what is being experienced by flood victims in some states of the federation.
She explained that an N3.8billion earlier approved by the president to the affected states - Jigawa, Sokoto, Kebbi, Lagos and Ogun - would be effectively monitored by the office to make sure that it is used for the purpose it has been appropriated for.
She explained that part of the money has already been disbursed to Sokoto and Kebbi states while Lagos, Jigawa and Osun would get their allocations before the end of the week.
She said the press briefing is aimed at developing a strong partnership with the media and other relevant stakeholders for effective public campaign on issues of climate change which has also been aggravated by human-related causes.
Concerning other ecological problems like coastal shoreline destruction, she said every state in the federation has ongoing projects carried out by her office, pointing out that some states in the Niger Delta regions are already benefiting from shoreline protection projects.
