understanding government and community efforts in tackling climate change, environmental pollution, ecosystem restoration and flooding in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria.
Dr Paul Igwe has initiated an exciting new collaboratory on understanding government and community efforts in tackling climate change, environmental pollution, ecosystem restoration and flooding in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. Our partner on this initiative is the African Centre for Climate Actions and Rural Development (ACCARD). ACCARD engages with stakeholders in the Niger Delta region including key Universities in the region. The specific focus of this co-lab is to advance nature-based solutions to climate change management and community approaches to issues related to climate change. Also, it initiates stakeholder interactions towards climate change livelihood and Ecosystem losses through sustainable approaches. The aim is to develop, amongst other things, climate change champions; leaders who understand what responsible practices are needed to ameliorate the causes of climate change, to guide practical activities in response to climate change and to develop reparative programmes.
