Climate Change Reduction: A Mirage in Nigeria

Pat-Mbano Edith C, Alaka Iheanyi N.

Abstract


This paper aims at assessing the weakness of Nigeria in efficaciously dealing with the menace of climate change within the country. The researchers examined how the campaigns against climate change has been embraced in the Real Estate Development Practices in Nigeria. Various surveys were conducted on deforestation, gas flaring, planning adaptations to climate change in selected housing estates, preservation of forests and the use of badly smoking vehicles on city roads. Campaigns and policy statements to reduce the adverse effects of climate change are made but not implemented. The TPAs and CDAs were blamed for inefficiency in monitoring and supervision of real estate developments at the various housing Estates surveyed. Deforestation in the Northern Nigeria was attributed to Poverty and lack of electricity supply from the public mains. It was concluded that climate change in Nigeria may not be achieved unless practical adaptive measure are taken, and all agents of Government responsible for overseeing their enforcements rises to their responsibilities without prejudice. Way forward to achieving climate change reduction in Nigeria is proffered.
