In the bid to foster deeper understanding of Nigeria’s commitment to the Paris Agreement while promoting legislative ownership of the nation’s climate change agenda, the Ministers of Environment, officials of the Climate Change Department of the Federal Ministry of Environment as well as representatives of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) on Tuesday in Abuja met with lawmakers in the House of Representatives and the Senate.

Themed: “Legislative Agenda to enhance Nigeria’s Climate Resilience: Developing an efficient Oversight Framework for Resource Governance (Green Economy),” the daylong forum was aimed at, among other objectives, equipping the legislature with the requisite knowledge to make laws that will facilitate the successful implementation of, for instance, the nation’s Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).
