ACReSAL Urges Banks to Support Adamawa’s Green Vision

By Ngozi Eyeh

The Adamawa Agro-Climatic Resilience in Semi-Arid Landscapes (ACReSAL) project, backed by the Adamawa State Ministry of Environment, has called upon the banking sector in Adamawa to actively participate in the “Greening of Greater Yola Project.”

This groundbreaking initiative aims to combat rising temperatures through strategic tree planting and greenery initiatives.

The collaborative effort was initiated during a meeting on Thursday, January 11, at the ACReSAL project office in Yola, the capital city of Adamawa.

The gathering witnessed the participation of top-ranking representatives from banking institutions, environmental consultants, and key personnel from the finance and environment ministries.

Chaired by the Adamawa State Commissioner of Environment, Mohammed Sadiq, and orchestrated by the State Project Coordinator of ACReSAL, Dr. Ibrahim Chinda, the event aimed to propel the state into an era of sustainable development.

Expressing gratitude for the impressive turnout, Dr. Chinda stressed the urgency of the greening initiative. “Over the past two decades, records reveal a staggering 6-degree rise in temperature in Greater Yola. Our mission is to combat this trend through strategic tree planting and greenery initiatives. We seek your collaboration in this ambitious endeavor.”

The meeting featured a team of experts led by Dr. Amos Badgal, presenting 3D-simulated projections for the entire Greater Yola area, including the 20-km superhighway and housing estate championed by Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri.

Commissioner Mohammed Sadiq unveiled an elaborate design for a city park and passionately urged financial institutions and benevolent organizations to join hands in enriching the environment, countering climate change, and fortifying resilience within the community.

Governor Fintiri’s strong endorsement for the “Greening of Greater Yola” project adds significant weight to Adamawa ACReSAL’s initiatives, promising a transformative year for the region.
