The impact of Climate Change is ravaging the world. In Nigeria, its impacts have led to extreme cases of drought, desertification, flooding, and disruption in rainfall patterns. These impacts adversely affect man’s health, well-being, and environment. Agricultural yields have been steadily affected causing a high poverty rate in the North. Intense flooding, disease spread through contaminated water is reported in the South. It is in recognition of this that Climate Smart Nigeria in collaboration with Glow initiative for Economic Empowerment with support from Access Bank Plc is investing in a new generation of young energy leaders to lead change for energy transition vis-a-vis climate action across Nigeria.
