Minister promises action to mitigate climate change’s damaging effects

.

The Minister of Environment, Abass Balarabe, has expressed optimism that solutions to the detrimental effects of climate change will be delivered.

The minister expressed hope that the session’s discussions would lead to concrete solutions for combating the negative effects of climate change and provide a pathway to attaining a healthier and greener environment for communities to thrive in, as he spoke on Friday in Abuja at the 9th Ordinary Session of the Council of Ministers of the Pan-African Agency of the Great Green Wall.

It is also on record that the 8th session of the Council began with a tree planting exercise, which is still maintained and sustained by the current administration, and he said that this is because a conducive environment ultimately leads to productivity and a healthy lifestyle for us and our future generations.

In light of the numerous environmental issues facing the country, Minister of State for Environment Dr. Iziaq Salako emphasized the importance of dedication and cooperation.

The minister noted that the Great Green Wall program is a unifying symbol for the continent and a light of hope in the fight against desertification, land degradation, and climate change.

According to Salako, Africa has done the least to contribute to the problem of climate change, which is wreaking havoc on communities and threatens our very survival.

He claims that Africa has the answers to climate change and global warming found in nature.

Louisa Baker, who represents the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification, reassured the agency that it will get support in its efforts to reduce desertification in the country.

She mentioned that the UN Convention to Combat Desertification has been behind the Great Green Wall from the beginning and advocated for the business sector to become more involved.
