As the world is getting keener into achieving the sustainable development goals, the project’s purpose, according to its promoters, is to contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Goal 13, Climate Action, in Nigeria.

“We hope that during the course of implementing this project the government, industries, private citizens and other stakeholders join in to take action to combat climate change,” the organisation disclosed in a statement made available to EnviroNews.
