Images: Assessing progress on Biennial Update Report

At a daylong forum in Abuja on Friday, January 3, 2017 titled: “Stakeholders workshop on the progress so far made on development of Nigeria’s First Biennial Update Report (BUR)”, the country took stock of the BUR report to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

The BUR is one of the key elements in the global mitigation action and also an obligation on all parties to the Convention to prepare and submit, every two years, information on its emission of greenhouse gases (GHG) by sources and removal by sinks, while reporting the actions undertaken and support received.

Participants – including representatives of the consultants (Triple “E” Systems, E & Y and Millcon & Millcon) – agreed, among other resolutions, that the consultants should work closer together in other to produce a quality report and meet the deadline for its submission.
