Ekiti State Government Commits to Environmental Protection
In Nigeria’s Ekiti State, harmful deforestation practices have impacted the lives of the state’s more than 2 million people who rely on subsistence farming to feed their families.
Last year Global Citizens and campaign partners united in taking action to defend the planet and defeat poverty, through September’s Global Citizen Live campaign. During the event key commitments were announced to help defeat poverty, combat climate change, and end the pandemic, totaling more than US$1.1 billion, 157 million trees, and over 60 million COVID-19 vaccines.
Now the Ekiti State Governor Dr. Kayode Fayemi has further pledged to fight climate change in the state by committing to pledged to plant 500,00 new trees by 2023, prioritize environment education, carry out biodiversity research, and develop a wildlife and conservation roadmap in Nigeria’s Ekiti state.
