Environment: Climate Change and Biodiversity Conservation in Nigeria
Climate change has increased the intensity of rainfall and flooding, thereby worsening landslide and gully erosion activities in Nigeria.
Profoundly the most significant but unheard impact of climate change in Nigeria and Africa at large, expanding gullies destroy precious vegetation and biodiversity, farmlands and livelihoods, streams and water channels, shelters, school buildings, access roads, communication infrastructure and other social amenities in Nanka community (shown in picture above) and other communities located mostly within the tropical rain forest climatic zone of Nigeria.
Since year 2009, PASDO (formerly Zeeler Campaign) has been leading efforts in various capacities to conserve biodiversity and fight the impacts of climate change in Nigeria.
