Community Led Climate Action Project Phase II

Community Led Climate Action Project Phase II

COMMUNITY LED CLIMATE ACTION PROJECT (CLCAP) Phase II – CLCAP II is an 11 month integrated environmental management, rural/urban development, and climate change education programme designed to reach the entire Makurdi Local Government Area. The phase II of the project is an upscale of the project
activities in phase I which ended in April 2020. The phase I of the project laid the necessary bedrock in terms of community penetration, stakeholder engagement and awareness of the initiative promoted by the project and the adoption of strategies that have been successful. Also, the learning from phase I implementation helped in identifying areas of focus to bridge the gaps the project identified during implementation.

CLCAP II combined the awareness on mitigation and adaptation strategies to community members and facilitated sustainable climate action at the grass root level in an up scaled scope. It also facilitated and advocated for complementing strategies to deal with climate change issues at the community level by supporting and creating awareness on the eminent dangers of climate change to crop production, non-availability of freshwater, loss of lives of animal species, irregular rainfall patterns, tree felling and bush burning. The project also applied an empowerment initiative that focused on strengthening communities to protect
their environment, planting trees as a way of climate change mitigation and climate smart investments.
