There is a need to upscale climate-smart innovations and management practices. Facilitating the upscaling of some simple, cost effective, accessible and easy to use climate innovations will help in building climate resilience and reducing emissions in the country.

As the Nigerian CVF Forum positions to take giant strides in maintaining safe environment, all key stakeholders are implored to partner with the Climate Impact Research Capacity and Leadership Enhancement on this near-herculean task.

Such a mission can only be made possible when the right partners collaborate with a unified vision.
