Fridays for Climate | Climate Change Response Programme in Nigeria

Nigeria is Africa’s largest country by population and GDP, the second heaviest emitter in Africa behind South Africa and is among the top 20 countries most vulnerable to climate change risks. 🌍

With the support of the EU GCCA+, the Nigerian government established the Nigeria Climate Change Response Programme (NCCRP) in 2020. The aim of the NCCRP is to identify actions that would reduce energy consumption and improve energy efficiency, reduce energy costs, and facilitate the transition to renewable energy. ♻️

Waste management is a growing problem for Nigeria and opening new sources of investment into improving waste management is a priority. In this context, the NCCRP aims notably to report and to verify emissions from the energy and waste sectors.
