Taraba Govt Commits to Mitigate Impact of Climate Change

The commitment to mitigating the impact of climate change across Taraba State remains a top priority for Governor Dr. Agbu Kefas.

Addressing both economic challenges and advocating sustainable land use practices are key goals of his administration.

During the weekend at the Federal University Wukari, he launched a campaign to plant two million assorted economic trees, emphasizing the crucial role of trees for both humanity and the environment.

Represented by Deputy Alhaji Abdullahi Aminu Alkali, the governor underscored the event’s significance as a major step towards environmental sustainability, conservation, and economic growth.

The planting of two million assorted economic trees reflects a shared determination to tackle economic challenges, promote sustainable land use practices, and mitigate climate change impacts in Taraba.

The Green Taraba project stands as evidence of the administration’s dedication to preserving natural heritage and bolstering economic resilience.

Supporting the governor’s stance, Commissioner Aishat Abdulazeez Barde emphasized the ministry’s preparedness to embark on afforestation efforts statewide, spanning all 16 local government councils. This initiative aims to significantly reduce the effects of climate change through vigorous tree-planting campaigns.
