Development and climate experts and policy makers in adaptation and smart agriculture sector from Nigeria and across the world will gather in a virtual event to discuss how adaption and smart agriculture could be properly integrated in the presently revised Nigeria’s NDC and climate action.
In the webinar, experts will explore ways in which the private sector could play more active and “meaningful” roles in the design and implementation of African NDCs and climate action more broadly. Panellist will also explore the barriers against greater involvement of the private sector in climate change action as well as the implication of climate change to the private sector.
The webinar entitled “Adaptation and Smart Agriculture in the new Nigeria’s NDC”, is being organised by the Centre for Climate Change and Development (CCCD), Alex Ekwueme Federal University, Ndufu-Alike Ikwo (AEFUNAI), Ebonyi State, in partnership with World Resources Institute (WRI) Washington DC. It will hold on Thursday, May 20th, 2021 at 4pm to 5.30pm West African Time (WAT).
