Climate Change: CAA Seeks Stakeholder Collaboration In Nigeria

Climate Action Africa (CAA) has called for a more impactful and inclusive approach to tackling the country’s pressing climate challenges.

The co-founder and Executive Director of Climate Action Africa (CAA), Ms Grace Oluchi Mbah made the call at a media parley in Lagos on Friday, ahead of the Climate Action Africa Forum (CAAF24) scheduled for June 19-20, 2024, in Lagos.

Mbah, who urges urgent steps to be taken in addressing Nigeria’s climate issues said, “This year’s February was the hottest, same was March, and it is certain that April will not be different.”

According to her, a more impactful and inclusive approach must be used to tackle the country’s pressing climate challenges, especially with Nigeria facing significant vulnerability to rising temperatures, erratic weather patterns, and environmental degradation.

She noted that Climate Action Africa (CAA) plans to use the forthcoming event to enlighten policymakers and investors on the need to support innovators.

Furthermore she said, the event would introduce the Deal Room, a dynamic marketplace connecting Africa’s brightest innovators with forward-thinking investors to accelerate impactful deals for climate action and sustainable development.

In the cause of the conference, CAA will partner with Silicon Valley-based Founder Institute, the world’s largest startup accelerator, to provide ongoing support to African innovators in a post-accelerator programme.

“CAAF24 provides a valuable platform for knowledge sharing, collaborative problem-solving, and forging strategic partnerships,” she said.

“By working together, we can ensure that Nigeria, and Africa as a whole, emerges as a leader in building a sustainable and climate-resilient future.”
