According to Isopi, the project has already started and will last through 2027. The EU will continue to support the Nigerian government’s implementation of its economic diversification objectives and new collaborations with the private sector, she further reassured stakeholders.

“In line with the EU’s Green Deal, the Green Economy Initiative will support the Nigerian government’s efforts to diversify the economy by combining support to enhance access to renewable energy for productive uses and boosting the development of the agricultural sector while integrating circular economy principles in the development models,” she said.

“Collectively, the actions will help Nigeria attain its SDGs and put the country on a sustainable development path.”

The TEI is anticipated to support Nigeria’s initiatives to advance its climate agendas. Nigeria created its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) in 2015 in preparation for ratifying the Paris Climate Agreement.

It is a component of a number of laws that make up Nigeria’s 2021– 2030 National Climate Change Policy.
