Nigeria has formally joined the global conversation to check progress and seeks to increase global ambition to meet the goals of the Paris climate change agreement.

It comes under a process designed to help countries implement and enhance their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) by 2020. One of the key outcomes of the UN Climate Change Conference COP23 in Bonn in November 2017, the Dialogue runs throughout 2018.

The first of a two-phase initiative is an On-line Assessment, in respect of which Environment Minister of State, Ibrahim Usman Jibril, officially launched recently.

The second phase of the National Talanoa Dialogue is a National Stakeholders Meeting.

The information harvested, he added, would be later validated during a National Stakeholders Meeting that will hold in collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).

According to him, the Ministry is undertaking the assessment in collaboration with the Nigerian Conservation Foundation (NCF), Centre for Policy Research and Development Solutions (CPRDS) and Institute for Public Policy Analysis and Management (IPPAM).

The Talanoa Dialogue refers to the “2018 facilitative dialogue” agreed by Parties in Paris to take stock of the collective efforts of Parties in relation to progress towards the log-term goal to combat climate change.

At the 23rd session of the Conference of the Parties (COP23), parties were recommended to have “national Talanoa Dialogue engaging stakeholders to help inform the process.”
