UN to tackle climate change, others in Nigeria
To tackle climate change and its effect on the environment and agriculture in the continent, the United Nation’s arm, Ecosystem Based Adaptation for Food Security Assembly (EBAFOSA), has launched an arm in Nigeria.
This was sequel to the Second Africa Ecosystem-Based Adaptation (EBA) for food security conference convened by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), with the African Union Commission (AUC), African Centre for Technology Studies and other partners.
At the conference, 1,200 delegates from across Africa adopted the Nairobi action agenda on Africa’s Ecosystem-Based Adaptation for Food Security and the constitution of the Ecosystem Based Adaptation for Food Security Assembly (EBAFOSA), that established the EBAFOSA.
