Lagos State Waste Management Authority – Van use by Lagos state waste management agency
Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has introduced the State Climate Change Action Plan to launch an action plan against the challenges of climate change in the state.
The Governor emphasized that, since climate change is no longer a theoretical threat, but a real phenomenon unfolding in front of everyone, this year’s climate summit is a bigger call for action.
He said the state-by-state climate action plan showed energy, waste and transport were the top three areas of concerns for Lagos state’s carbon-free ambitions, which will be key at this year’s climate summit.
Sanwp-Olu said that the foundations laid by his predecessors, which included the start of work on a climate action plan and the initiation of a climate summit, had been successful in building on the strong heritage of the past, including the yearly tree planting event.
The Secretary General of the UN also reemphasized the fact that the world is faced with an environmental crisis that may lead to food, water and other resources required for survival.
