CLIMATE CHANGESee how the FME’s Special Unit
is tackling Climate Change.
Message from the Minister of Environment
Since its establishment, the Ministry has impacted on raising the issue of environmental consciousness in the minds of Nigerians as well as the interface with the global environmental best practices. It has focused on evolving innovative strategies that emphasize the use of environmental reengineering as a veritable tool for poverty eradication, ensuring food security, encouraging sustainable economic development and the general improvement in the livelihood of the Nigerian populace. It has also pursued at the International level, the use of the environment in defining the country’s foreign policy thrust as a means of ensuring good governance globally and regionally.
Most importantly, Nigeria through the Ministry has continued to provide purposeful leadership at various international fora – as a representative of the West African Sub-region, the African Continent, Non-aligned Nations as well as developing nations.
