 Lagos State Government has launched its Climate Adaptation and Resilience Plan (LCARP) and Climate Change Mainstreaming Strategy. 

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu unveiled the plan at the 10th International Climate Change Summit, emphasizing the state’s commitment to climate adaptation.

“It is important for us to recognise the urgency of our collective actions in mitigating the effects and championing adaptation initiatives,” Sanwo-Olu said.
