Edu Seeks Humanitarian Organizations Support To Address Climate Change in Nigeria

By Grace Samuel

Nigeria’s Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, Dr Betta Edu has called on other Humanitarian organizations across the globe, particularly those who attended the Cop28 to support in addressing the issues of climate change in Nigeria.

Dr Bettu, who addressed a session of some top leaders at the COP 28 conference in Dubai, urged foreign partners to support President Bola Tinubu’s government in addressing the global climate change impacts which she said has greatly affected Nigeria.

She clearly pointed out that Nigeria was working on Going-green policy sustainability and as well, ways to provide long lasting solutions to reduce climate change and eradicate poverty.

A statement from the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, quoted the Minister as emphasising the need to address climate change issues as it causes humanitarian crisis.

“The loss of lives, natural resources, food insecurity, direct and indirect social impacts, and displacement are some of the humanitarian and poverty alleviation challenges caused by climate change in developing countries, including Nigeria.

“There’s a need to provide lasting solutions to the impacts of climate change which is one of the causes of humanitarian crises and poverty challenges in Nigeria.

Participants of the COP28 conference, development partners, foreign donors and foreign humanitarian organizations across the globe should support this genuine intention that Nigeria and its government has towards tackling climate change issues.

“Nigeria as a country would take full advantage of the global stage to implore other international partnerships to come to thier aid and help in the Renewed Hope Agenda of the country, as well as creating durable solutions that will bring about permanent change in our country, she said.
