Stakeholders in the environment and agriculture sectors have pledged to offer technical support to make it easier for National Adaptation Plans (NAPs) to be implemented across the nation.
The stakeholders expressed their commitment at a workshop on Climate Adaptation Support Program (CASP), organised by an Africa-based non-profit research organization, AKADEMIYA2063, in Abuja on Friday.
The workshop was held in partnership with the Resource and Environmental Policy Research Centre, University of Nigeria, Nsukka, Environment for Development (REPRC-EfD) Nigeria and the Global Centre on Adaptation.
According to the Director of the REPRC-EfD Nigeria, Dr Nnaemeka Chukwuone, the workshop was organised to validate research findings, meant to facilitate the implementation of the National Action Plan on climate change.
The NAPs are a continuous, progressive and iterative process that follows a country-driven, gender-sensitive, participatory and fully-transparent approach.
Chukwuone said the purpose of the meeting was to conduct consultation and validation of the synthesis report which consists of a review of NAPs implementation progress and an assessment of environmental changes.
