CSEA-CPED Host National Workshop On Climate Change

CSEA in collaboration with the Centre for Population and Environmental Development (CPED) convened a National Workshop on “Climate Change and Environmental degradation in Nigeria” on September 8-9 2014 in Abuja, Nigeria. The workshop examined the concept of climate change and the fundamental challenges it poses to man and the ecosystems with focus on findings from a research on “Climate Change on Vulnerability, Impact and Adaptation in the Lowland and Wetland Areas of Delta State, Nigeria.

The workshop provided a platform for the academia, civil society organisations, the media and other stakeholders to share knowledge on the effects of climate change and explore key issues relating to the increased degradation of the ecosystem and its associated risks in an effort to proffer evidence-based solutions. Participants and key speakers highlighted the need for the adaptation of a climate change policy as well as extensive awareness on adaptation strategies for risk-prone areas and the socio-economic sectors most susceptible to the effect of climate change and environmental degradation.
