OUR WORK

THE L-GHGI PROJECT

In partnership with the Lagos State Government, through the Ministries of Environment; Energy and Mineral Resources and the Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency (LASEPA); our organization, Climate and Ecological Protection Initiative (CEPI) has been given the required approval to proceed with the L-GHGI project.

The L-GHGI project is a formidable project that attempts to measure the carbon footprint (carbon emission factor) of Lagos state and its perimeter. A robust greenhouse Gas inventory database is a valuable tool for developing policies and programs that address Climate Change and Economic Development. Moreover, the global community cannot take Nigeria’s Climate Change Mitigation efforts seriously without a certified Greenhouse Gas database that is set in accordance with the Global Protocol for community - scale emission (GPC) reporting, and which is compliant with national Inventory requirement of the IPCC 2006 guidelines. The effective planning for climate action in Nigeria begins with structuring a robust Greenhouse Gas Inventory database system, because you cannot manage what you cannot measure!

President Buhari in 2016, committed Nigeria to reduce its “Greenhouse Gas Emission unconditionally by 20% and conditionally by 45%” in line with Nigeria’s Nationally Determined Contribution. However, what classes of Greenhouse gasses are present in Nigeria? What progress has been made in carbon emissions reduction?
