nigeria: raising awareness of climate change impacts
Climate Change is severely affecting livelihoods in Nigeria by altering seasonal rainfall patterns. Streams and springs are drying up, causing major crop yield reductions and food shortages. However, the level of awareness of climate change impacts is very low. Corporations and the transport sector, the major perpetrators of this damage, have not even begun to take the necessary actions to address these problems. No abatement measures are being implemented to stop gas flaring, Nigeria’s main source of greenhouse gas emissions.
