The Centre for Climate Change and Development, Alex Ekwueme Federal University, Ndufu-Alike Ikwo, in partnership with World Resources Institute (WRI) Washington DC is organizing a webinar on “Aligning Nigeria’s Nationally Determined Contributions with the COVID-9 Recovery plan.”
In this webinar, global experts will explore the ways in which Nigeria’s revised NDC and its post-COVID-19 economic stimulus (the NESP) could be more closely connected so that they can reinforce each other and help put the country on the path to just green transition. Experts will also consider examples from other countries including the UK and the US. The main presentation will draw from how the Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) and the Post COVID-19 Economic stimulus can reinforce each other to set Nigeria on the path of a just green transition towards meeting its NDC contribution, a commissioned short analytical piece by the Center for Climate Change and Development as part of the project on providing independent critical analysis and input into the revision process of Nigeria’s Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) which is due for submission in November 2021.
Please join us on this important webinar to discuss the findings by leading national experts.
We look forward to seeing you.
