State and non state actors graced the 9th Lagos State Climate Change Summit.
Extensively, participants discussed how indigenous Climate Actions can best facilitate development, investments and trade offs for the State.
The State has agreed in principle to decarbonize, cut green house gas emission and consider renewable options but there are lingering questions about in house capacities, technical know how, resources and opportunity cost.
CAPPA Africa again emphasized the intentions of the deliberately silenced “loss and damage clause” and the “yet to be tapped” miracles of Climate Finance for Global South, Lagos inclusive. The State can leverage these opportunities to achieve its decarbonization wish and also demand justice from big polluters.
We are not unaware of the size and significance of Lagos and how quickly an effective Climate change policy from the State can become a national template.
