Research consultancy on parliamentary climate change capability
The effect of climate change such as variability of annual rainfall pattern, food security, desertification and soil erosion, weather, economic life especially of the poor would increase unless urgent measures are adopted. In order to abate the severity and consequences of climate change, policies would have to be formulated, bills enacted and adaptation and mitigation strategies implemented and monitored at local communities through national central governments. Government would have to approve fresh policies and standard operating procedures. This calls for informed, empowered and enlightened parliamentarians to debate various climate change issues.
