NGO trains Niger Delta Councillors on climate change funding

Kebetkache Women Development and Resource Centre has trained Councillors in the Niger Delta on accessing climate funding to combat the destruction of their environment.

The training was held in Port Harcourt at a one-day advocacy meeting on Gender and Climate Change for Ward Councillors held over the weekend.

The Executive Director of the Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), Emem Okon said that the meeting exposes councillors on the availability of funding and access to resources in the Climate Change Green funding.

She said that if communities begin to have access to funding, they can plan for adoption and mitigation measures which will help in reducing climate change negative implications on the people.

According to Okon, climate change have badly affected farming, resulting into low crop yields, leading to food insecurity, hunger and family crisis.

The keynote speaker, Tititope Asoka, explained that there are lots of International funds for Climate Change, adding that Councillors should avail themselves of the opportunity.

She said the G7 countries have taken responsibility to give funding to developing nations to mitigate and adapt their environment.
