NIGERIA – Nigeria Climate risk assessment in agriculture and coastal development

One of the aims is to implement an integrated assessment of climate related risks, based on available datasets and exisisting models, focusing on different but interacting sectors (agriculture and water)

Duration
23 months from 01/01/2011 to 01/12/2012

General aims
  • to implement an integrated assessment of climate related risks, based on available datasets and exisisting models, focusing on different but interacting sectors (agriculture and water);
  • to analyze a set of representative and plausible scenarios alerting policymakers and stakeholders about emerging problems related to climate change impacts (e.g. sector development, food security, water scarcity, energy supply), and providing a reference point for strategic planning of adaptation measures in Nigeria;
  • to identify and assess potential adaptation measures to reduce above assessed risks related to climate;
  • to quantitatively assess the effectiveness of adaptation measures to climate change;
