Youth Statement on Climate Change
Our planet is in an environmental distress. In every region temperatures are becoming hotter. Unless urgent steps are taken to reduce global temperatures the earth may lose its resilience and capability to support life forms. In the last few years in Nigeria, the weather conditions have been extreme with severe flood and drought, and with negative impacts on food production which is majorly rain fed.
This report is a summary of the climate change statements, commitments and demands from a diverse and inclusive group of youths on their perception of climate change in Nigeria. The report is based on the empirical findings and stories of youths from different social classifications including secondary school students, undergraduates, postgraduate students, youths in employment, youths with disabilities and youths that are neither educated nor employed.
