Climate Action in Nigeria: Risks, Urgencies, and Opportunities

Past Event

February 15, 2023

12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Watch on:

While international organizations and global financial institutions debate the future of investment in fossil fuels on the African continent, African nations continue to suffer the worst impacts of climate change. The October 2022 devastating floods in Nigeria were the worst in half a century and displaced more than one million people while causing massive damage to agricultural production and industrial activity. Intensifying discussions over Nigeria’s role in adaptation to and mitigation of climatic changes underline the importance of exploring different perspectives–across sectors and different parts of Nigerian society–on what kind of climate action the country should prioritize.

The Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs hosted a panel discussion.

Moderators:

  • Ariwoola Ogbemi, Senior Advisor, Equinor and Adjunct Research Scholar, Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia SIPA
  • Dr. Harry Verhoeven, Senior Research Scholar, Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia SIPA

Panelists:

  • Dr. Ibidun Adelekan, Professor of Geography, University of Ibadan
  • Tariye Gbadegesin, CEO and Managing Director, ARM-Harith Infrastructure Investment
  • Muntaqa Umar-Sadiq, Head of the Energy Transition Office, Sustainable Energy for All
