Held in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County, the workshop brought together experts from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and presented a unique opportunity for the support of Liberia’s development programs.
Jeremiah Sokan, focal person and national coordinator of the National Climate Change Secretariat said Liberia currently stands a chance of benefiting from US$50 million which could go towards building defenses against creeping sea erosion that is gradually washing away buildings across the country.
“Climate change is the defining challenge of our time,” he said.
“The human impact on our planet is unprecedented. Long-term changes in the earth’s climate system are significant."
"The Green Climate Fund was established with a mission to advance the goal of keeping the temperature increase on our home planet below 2 degrees Celsius.”
“The Fund is a unique global initiative to respond to climate change by investing into low-emission and climate-resilient development.”
