Minister of Environment, Amina Mohammed, has said her ministry would convene an emergency forest and biodiversity dialogue with relevant stakeholders to show its zero tolerance for the level of damage done to forest in Nigeria. Mohammed, who said this during the celebration of International Day of Forest in Abuja, yesterday, added that all commissioners of environment, directors of forestry, Ministry of Finance and relevant NGOs would be involved in the dialogue aimed at putting a stop to activities causing deforestation and forest degradation. According to her, forest in wetlands depends on water sources and at the same time, the forest ecosystem sustains water quality and helps mitigate the risks of water-related disasters. But she said, “Many see forest as source of revenue generation with little or nothing ploughed back for forest development. Activities of timber merchants, especially illegal loggers, continue to worsen the situation and the Ministry has zero tolerance for the damage done to the forest in Nigeria.” She described the rate of deforestation and forest degradation arising from intensive logging of timber and fuel wood extraction as unacceptable. In his own submission, Director General of Nigerian Conservation Foundation (NCF), Adeniyi karunwi said if about two-third of the estimated…

To mitigate the effects of climate change on the environment as already being felt in Nigeria, public advocacy about the environment should be intensified among the populace so as to be more aware of the need to adjust their lifestyle to reduce carbon emission which poses a threat to human existence. This assertion was made by the Director General, Nigerian Conservation Foundation (NCF), Mr. Adeniyi Karunwi, at the Foundation’s headquarters in Lekki, Lagos, during the event to commemorate the Earth Hour 2016, organized in partnership with a nongovernmental organisation, Connected Development (CODE). During the event that was marked with the symbolic one-hour of darkness, between 8:30pm and 9:30 pm, so as to encourage the reduction of carbon emission, observed across over 170 countries according to time zones and broadcast worldwide via the social media, Karunwi said there was need for social and political will to intensify campaign against the rise in global temperatures and its ripple effect on the environment because many Nigerians are still unaware of the benefits of building a clean energy economy and the risks of not doing it. According to him, this accounts for the reason the NCF is willing to support every effort of the…
Biding is closed. Thank you. The Chairman Assets Disposal Committee Nigerian Conservation Foundation Km 19, Lagos-Epe Expressway, Lekki P.O. Box 74638 Victoria Island, Lagos.
The Director General of the Nigerian Conservation Foundation (NCF), Mr. Adeniyi Karunwi, has called for more efforts that can combat degradation of forests, which will in turn protect the wildlife, just as he said a similar effort was needed to stop trafficking of wildlife in the country and sub-Saharan Africa at large. Karunwi made the call at the United States Consulate, Lagos, during the commemoration of this year’s World Wildlife Day organised by the American Consulate According to him, the pressure for ivory as a result of the demand from parts of Asia should be curbed so as to discourage hunting and indiscriminate poaching, which have led to the decline of wildlife population including elephants and rhinos. He said other animals such as pangolins had also become endangered because of such human activities. To fully arrest the situation, Karunwi said NCF was already championing the Green Recovery Nigeria Initiative with the aim of recovering one per cent of forest cover per year in the country for the next 25 years so as to meet up with the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation’s recommendation of 25 per cent forest cover. He said the initiative was also part of the Foundation’s…
