About the Programme
Following the ratification of the Paris Agreement in 2017, Nigeria committed itself to conditionally reduce its greenhouse gas (GHGs) emissions by 47% in 2030 in line with its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) pledge (Revised figure).
To support Nigeria’s mitigation and Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 13 on “climate action” efforts, the European Union, under its Global Public Goods and Challenges Thematic Programmes, is funding the Nigerian Climate Change Response Programme (NCCRP).
The NCCRP also promotes progress towards goals 7 “affordable and clean energy” and 5 “gender equality”.
The Conseil Santé Consortium collaborates with the Department of Climate Change, Federal Ministry of Environment to implement the NCCRP.
The NCCRP is intended to:
- Enhance Nigeria´s capacity to meet its NDC´s pledge of conditional 47 per cent reduction of Greenhouse Gas emissions by 2030 in line with SDG 13 on climate action (2021 Revised figure).
The NCCRP is expected to achieve the following specific objectives:
- Establish the Measuring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) framework and the implementation of sustainable sectoral MRV systems for waste and energy.
- Disseminate climate change knowledge through awareness-raising campaigns targeting the youth, civil society, stakeholders, and policymakers.
- Establish a National and two States’ waste baselines as well as emissions profile associated with sustainable capacity building on best practices.
The Conseil Santé Consortium, a French agency with a focus on international health, social protection, climate change adaptation and mitigation is leading the SOFRECO, CITEPA and FACTOR outfits in the provision of technical assistance for the NCCRP’s implementation.
The Technical Assistance Team (TAT), supported by local partners: NEST and CENRAD, is responsible for providing advice and expertise, in collaboration with relevant stakeholders (private sector, civil societies, academia, national and sub-national governments).
Other areas within the programme’s scope include institutional development and coordination, institutional strengthening, capacity building, planning, budgeting, and financing.
The NCCRP also builds capacity at the Federal and State levels while supporting service management, monitoring progress against set programme performance indicators.
The NCCRP is expected to last fifty-two months.
(From January 2020 to June 2024).
