CSEA and SAIIA organise hybrid event on the Evaluation of Nigeria’s post-COVID-19 Macroeconomic Policies

The Centre for the Study of the Economies of Africa, in collaboration with the South African Institute of International Affairs (SAIIA), organized a hybrid event to disseminate findings from our qualitative and quantitative research on climate change. The paper, titled ‘Evaluation of Nigeria’s post-COVID-19 Macroeconomic Policies: Are they Climate Change friendly?’ focused on promoting impactful research and supporting informed policies and practices in response to climate change crises.
The session kick-started with a paper presentation from our Research Associate, Tikristini Olasode, after which other presentations were made by Obi Ugochuku, the Director of Product Development and Data Management at Applied Logic, and Chukweloka Okeke, a consultant and Engineering geologist. The presentations analyzed Nigeria’s macroeconomic policy measures to ascertain how helpful they are in achieving the country’s climate commitments as specified in the country’s Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) as well the trajectory of funding.
The paper also provided some policy recommendations to help government achieve green economic recovery in Nigeria.
The panelists for the event include: Abdulmajeed Amussah, Esemuze Lucky, and Professor Emmanuel Nwosu. They provided key policy recommendations to support the cross-border research and output of the research project.
