Welcome to the launch of the NCCRP website! The NCCRP stands for the Nigeria Climate Change Response Programme and is a four-year (2019-2023) Technical Assistance support programme to guarantee the country’s economic growth and development strategies while meeting its Paris Agreement (2017) pledge of conditionally reducing its Greenhouse Gas emissions by 45% by 2030, when compared to “business-as-usual” levels.
The NCCRP is funded by the European Union (EU) and will be implemented at the territorial level of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the selected pilot states of Kano in the north of the country and Ogun in the south of the country. The programme’s genesis is traceable to the EU’s desire under its Global Public Goods and Challenges Thematic Programmes, and is designed to contribute to Nigeria’s progressive achievement of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 13 on “climate action”. Additionally, It promotes progress towards goals 7 “affordable and clean energy” and 5 “gender equality”.
In partnership with the Department of Climate Change (DCC) of the Federal Ministry of Environment, the Technical Assistance Team (TAT) works with different target groups and stakeholders to improve Nigeria’s Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emission profile with the aim of pinpointing mitigation actions reducing energy use and costs in favour of renewable energy and energy-efficient solutions. This will be mainly achieved through the creation of sectoral Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV) frameworks (e.g. for energy and waste sectors) and a waste baseline.
With this website the NCCRP Team intends to digitise, catalogue and display initiatives that speak to Nigeria´s efforts of living up to its pledge on Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC), along with other pertinent programme information and allied content for increasing the perception and knowledge of climate change topics, including cross-cutting ones, among different target audience and the general public, and to gain wider support for climate action and environmental programs.
