NDDC asked to create Niger Delta Green Fund to address climate challenges

The Niger Delta Development Commission (NNDC) has been called upon to establish a “green fund” to tackle the climate change challenges in the region.

The call was made at the close of the 2nd Niger Delta Climate Conference and Pre-COP26 Meeting held from October 7 to 8, 2021 at the Federal University of Petroleum Resources, Effurun (FUPRE) in Delta State.

Themed “Addressing climate change emergency through nature-based solutions”, the event was organized by the African Centre for Climate Actions and Rural Development (ACCARD) in collaboration with FUPRE.

Participants also agreed to establish a regional financial institution to finance climate change concerns and projects. They were also favourably disposed towards the creation of a regional network for climate change information sharing and communication including key stakeholders training.
