NCCRP Fact Sheet 004

About the Programme

Following the ratification of the Paris Agreement in 2017, Nigeria committed itself to conditionally reducing its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 47% in 2030 in line with its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) pledge (2021 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 toward goals 7 “affordable and clean energy” and 5 “gender equality”.

The Conseil Santé Consortium collaborates with the Department of Climate Change, and the Federal Ministry of Environment to implement the NCCRP.

NCCRP Intervention Areas

Programme Goal

The NCCRP is intended to:

  • Enhance Nigeria´s capacity to meet its NDC´s pledge of a conditional 47 per cent reduction of Greenhouse Gas emissions by 2030 in line with SDG 13 on climate action (2021 Revised figure).

Specific Objectives

The NCCRP is designed to achieve the following specific objectives:

  • Establish the Measuring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) framework as well as 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 National and two States waste baselines and emissions profiles associated with sustainable capacity building of best practices.

Project Team

The Conseil Santé Consortium, a French agency focused on international health, social protection, climate change adaptation and mitigation, is leading the SOFRECO, CITEPA and FACTOR outfits in providing technical assistance for the NCCRP’s implementation.

The Technical Assistance Team (TAT), supported by the subcontracted 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).

Internationally Transferred Mitigation Outcomes (ITMOs)

The NCCRP’s activity scope was expanded in December 2021 with the inclusion of the Internationally Transferred Mitigation Outcomes component – ITMOs.

This newly introduced element is envisioned to build Nigeria’s capability in the direction of understanding and effectively taking advantage of the Internationally Transferred Mitigation Outcomes (ITMOs) to achieve its Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), promote sustainable development and ensure environmental integrity, transparency, and governance.

Nigeria is expected to apply robust accounting to ensure, inter alia the avoidance of double counting, consistent with the guidance adopted by the Conference of the Parties. The use of ITMOs to achieve NDC under the Paris Agreement shall be voluntary and authorised by the participating Parties.


The NCCRP is expected to last fifty-four months.

(From January 2020 to July 2024).

  1. The timing of this project in this part of the country is apt. The location falls within the most vulnerable areas that are characterized with low adaptive capacity, low literacy level, high poverty level of the larger part of its population and with an agricultural system that is largel traditional.

    I am interested and want to participate in the project. I’m in the academia and currently reside in Katsina. I’m equally active in Climate change research, with much interest in water resources.

    As part of capacity development, I’m aiming toward mentoring young Nigerian undergraduate, as well as postgraduate students in this aspect of research in my institution through this partnership if considered.
