The Pan African Climate Justice Alliance (PACJA) and Africa Coalition for Sustainable Energy Access (ACSEA), in collaboration with Environmental Rights Action/Friends of the Earth Nigeria (ERA/FoEN), on Tuesday, April 19, 2022, in Abuja launched a project on “Ensuring a people-centred energy transition in Africa through civil society engagement.”
According to the promoters, the project will strengthen the role of CSOs and CBOs in promoting and implementing sustainable energy transition initiatives and renewable energy-related NDC commitments in five African countries, including Nigeria.
The project aims to equip CSOs and CBOs with skills, knowledge and tools to engage in renewable energy policy development and programme implementation monitoring and strengthen their voice at the local, continental and global levels.
The German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV) funds the project through the International Climate Initiative (IKI).
