For weeks we have talked to you about the revision of the Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC), its objectives and the need for the public to be engaged with the NDCs.
The NDC is the document where Nigeria states the major actions it will take – both mitigation and adaptation – to address the threat of climate change. Nigeria is among the 190 countries that voluntarily submitted her NDC to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in 2015, is currently working on the revision of the initial proposal.
Now, we will like to hear from you, by taking part in the NDC Challenge
To participate, write a blog post of not more than 600 words on “Effects of Climate Change on my Environment, and how Nigeria’s NDCs can address it”.
