Youths should be involve in climate change
Dr Ibrahim Choji, Chairman Board of Trustees, Climate and Sustainable Development Network of Nigeria (CSDevNet), has encouraged the government to include the youths in the activities of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), for effective implementation.
Choji said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja on Sunday in Abuja,
According to him, NDCs was one of the key tools for measuring what each country was doing in addressing the climate change issues.
“The youth need to understand the approach concerning the well being and equity of current and future generations.
“The youth are the ones who will most likely face difficult living conditions in a changing climate such as drought, flooding and food security.
“But they are not historically responsible for those conditions.
“It is very important we examine actionable things so as not to see inputs by youth continuously ignored as it is often the case,’’ he said.
The climate has been an issues over the time and needs prompt attention for the safety of mankind, nature, wildlife and the environment.
