The Federal Government of Nigeria has collaborated with the World Bank, to address environmental degradation in 19 states of the country.

Minister of Environment, Mohammed Abdullahi, revealed this during ACReSAL Technical Work Plan Workshop, which took place in Victoria Island, Lagos State, adding that this will be done through the Agro-Climatic Resilience in Semi-Arid Landscapes, ACReSAL, Project, which was launched recently.

He further disclosed that the project would be handled by the Federal Ministries of Environment, Agriculture and Water Resources.

Among others, the minister said the project would also provide food security through motivated agricultural activities. “What we intend to do is to try, as much as we can, to get the various committees, participants and the beneficiaries motivated in agricultural activities.”

Also commenting, Senior Environmental Specialist of the World Bank, Dr Iganya Joy, said the most important part of the project, to be funded by the bank, “is about building institutions, sustaining issues around land degradation, livelihood and others.”
