His Excellency Gov. Willie Obiano has assented to a bill establishing an Erosion and Climate Change Agency in a bold response to instituting a robust climate action in the state.
In his statement, the governor noted that emission and GHG reduction will take prominence in the evolving state climate policy. The policy will support reversal of erosion devastation and encourage investments in renewable energy and climate adaptation plans while contributing to Nigeria’s obligations under the Paris Agreement. Increased gender participation, protection of vulnerable people and livelihood restoration is a vital component of this policy.
Gov. Obiano invites the Federal Government, Development Institutions and Private Sector to partner with Anambra State in this important issue of our time.
