Exploring Climate Change and Food security in Nigeria - September 26, 2018
On September 26th the Embassy of France and the Institut français du Nigéria organised a documentary screening within the framework of the European Union Climate Diplomacy Week 2018 and in collaboration with the Yar’Adua Foundation. The documentary screened was “Swallow: Food Security in Nigeria’s Changing Climate”
The documentary addresses challenges brought on in part by our changing climate, inadequate infrastructure and agricultural practices. It features inspiring stories and explores potential opportunities and solutions to our food security challenge.
Since 2015 and the COP 21 in Paris, France has been at the forefront of the fight against climate change. France is proud to be part of this week for the second consecutive year and to have partnered with the Yar’Adua Foundation this year. At the end of the screening, a Q&A session followed with Mr Amara Nwankpa, Director of Public Policy Initiative at the Yar’Adua Foundation.
