Profiling Nigeria’s Nationally Determined Contributions

Nigeria updated its NDC in July 2021, matching the ambition of its first NDC to take bold action against the climate crisis. Whilst the country’s emission reduction promises are virtually the same, a recalculation of GHG data means that the new plan does pledge a much lower level of emissions by 2030. The problem, however, is that systemic problems in the current prevent the necessary injections of finance to bring these proposals into fruition.
