Written by on June 17, 2022

Environmental stakeholders in Kwara State have resolved to engage communities and grassroots to implement solutions to local challenges caused by climate change in the state.

The Director of Programmes, Ilorin Global Shapers Community, Azeez Abubakar, said this at a White Paper Stakeholders’ Roundtable in Ilorin.Abubakar said the meeting was to work out ways to implement actionable plans toward climate change adaptations through community outreaches, capacity, and resilience building.

According to him, the Ilorin Climate Action “Iyipada Oju Ojo Ilorin” campaign is an initiative of the Ilorin Global Shapers Community and the aim is to purposefully engage key stakeholders at all levels to implement solutions to local challenges. He said that people at the grassroots were not aware of the effect of climate change on them, hence the need for awareness and sensitisation.

The Founding Curator, Ilorin Global Shapers Community,  Oyindamola Yusuf, said that working with other stakeholders in the community would help in achieving the aims of the campaign.

Yusuf said that climate change affects the economy of any community.
