The ACEARD Climate Dialogue is a flagship initiative of the African Centre for Environment, Agriculture & Rural Development where policy makers, private sector, academia, farmers, civil society, media are engaged in series of discussions around climate issues, actions and how to foster low-carbon and high-growth economic development while building a climate resilient society in Africa.
The aim of this year’s Dialogue is to provide an awareness and opportunity for interaction, consolidation, and sharing experience that could inform emerging Climate Smart Agriculture for Nigeria while also seeking to mobilize actions on policies, practices and financing for food security, adaptation and mitigation.
And, to lead this important dialogue, a panel of discussants with both national and international experiences have been selected for the dialogue .
The West Africa’s coastline was reputed for its rich mangroves plantation which protected the coastline aganist erosion; provided a safe haven for the breeding of fishes and fingerlings and generally served as a natural embankment against ocean surges. The greatest threat to the mangrove ecosystem is the exotic invasive Nypa palm, which displaces the mangrove stands thereby establishing itself in a mono-specific manner. The incursion of Nypa palm has taken its toll on the coastal vegetation of Nigeria especially the Niger Delta region.
We are soliciting your donation to help our works in restoring the degraded mangroves in West Africa coastline. Each donation you made, ACEARD will issue you with receipt and a certificate indicating how many mangroves your donation has helped to plant.
