About Us
• National Focal Point for climate change;
• DNA for CDM;
• broad mandate: undertakes national
implementation of the UNFCCC, the Kyoto Protocol
and any other instrument put in place on climate
change issue.
National Capacity Building Activities
 Preparation of National Communication;
 Preparation of NAPA (on voluntary bases);
 National climate change programmes: awareness
creation, technology needs assessment, CDM
implementation etc;
Capacity Building cont.
E-Newsletter on climate change;
Website design for climate change;
Training on negotiation skills;
Launched the CDM procedural guidelines;
Project on building Nigeria’s Response to Climate
Change (BNRCC),
Capacity Building for Implementation of Adaptation
• The Eleven (11)desert prone front line states in
Nigeria are facing precarious situation due to impacts
of climate change.
• Recognizing the need to build the capacity of policy
makers and Non-governmental Organizations (NGOs)
in tackling climate change adaptation, a three days
National Workshop for the policy makers was
Capacity Building
• The workshop is part of the activities under a
“Three year National Awareness Programme”
on climate change;
• Workshop targeted specifically States
Commissioners of Environment, Permanent
Environmental Protection Agencies, Directors
and representatives of NGOs from the eleven
Objective of the Workshop
• To facilitate formulation of good environmental
policy and integrate climate change adaptation issues
into the eleven front line states’ sustainable
development action plan;
• To assess and respond to vulnerability of sectors in
light of predicted climate change impacts;
• Build capacity to replicate workshops in respective
states within the zone to response to climate change.
Using Indicators for Performance
• Performance indicators are designed to provide
comprehensive monitoring and evaluation of projects or
programmes establishing output and outcomes, both
quantitatively and qualitatively
Expected output: To build informed responses to climate
change in the eleven desert prone states by enhancing
capacity at the community and state levels to implement
effective adaptation strategies, policies and actions;
Performance Indicators
•The following parameters at respective states were
accessed and evaluated:
i. Legal Framework;
ii. Governance structure;
iii. Capacity and manpower
2. Expected Outputs:
Knowledge and tools for analysis of climate change
vulnerabilities and impacts on women, key sectors and
eco-regional zones including scenarios on climate
change impacts for planning;
Practical experience about community-based
adaptation responses to climate change by vulnerable
populations in key sectors and eco-regional zones;
Tools for action on climate change adaptation
including tools and mechanisms to integrate and
strengthen the role of women in climate change
3 Outcome:
• Increased integration of gender sensitive
climate change adaptation into states
sustainable development strategies;
•Increased capacity of the states governments
and civil society to take informed action on
climate change.
• Huge need for capacity development to effectively and
efficiently response to climate change;
• Long term training essential;
• GEF funding for an enabling activity to scope needs,
support establishment of governance structure;
• Bilateral partnership to develop and implement CB
initiatives through outreach, awareness, education and
• Tracking CB implementation process.
