Climate change is a threat to Africa, with rising temperatures, sea levels, an increase in the number of flood occurrences, changing precipitation patterns and more extreme weather which continuously threaten human health and safety, food and water security and socio-economic development in Africa.
Despite the morbidity of the situation, there are actions that can be taken to save our planet and ensure the continuity of the human race. Simple actions from effective waste management, using alternative energy sources, reducing carbon emissions etc.
In Lagos State, the government is taking numerous actions to address the rising challenges which come with the effects of climate change. While commendable efforts have been made, there is still a lot of room for improvement. A good place to start will be with effective waste management strategies.
CEFAC LAGOS is an initiative that seeks to unite all stakeholders (public, private and residents of Lagos) in uniting our efforts for effective waste management for the state. Further identifying existing potentials within the circular economy value chain within communities and empowering youths to create enterprises within those spaces.
