NCCRP Fact Sheet July 2020

About the Programme

Following the ratification of the Paris Agreement in 2017, Nigeria committed itself to conditionally reduce its greenhouse gases (GHGs) emissions by 45% in 2030 in line with its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) pledge.

To support Nigeria’s mitigation efforts, the European Union, under its Global Public Goods and Challenges Thematic Programmes, is funding the Nigerian Climate Change Response Programme (NCCRP).

In addition, the NCCRP contributes to the country’s progressive achievement of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 13 on “climate action”. It also promotes progress towards goals 7 “affordable and clean energy” and 5 “gender equality”.

The Conseil Santé Consortium in collaboration with the Department of Climate Change, Federal Ministry of Environment is implementing the NCCRP.
