Join us as we journey to Nigeria, to explore how policy coherence can tackle sustainable development challenges in Africa’s economic giant.

Sustainable Development challenges. 

Come with us to Nigeria where we will be delving into the intricacies of policy coherence in one of Africa’s most dynamic economies. With a population of over 200 million people Nigeria is Africa’s most populous country, home to diverse range of ethnic groups, culture and languages. As Nigeria’s population grows the country is contending with numerous sustainable development challenges. This week’s installment explores how Nigeria can address critical issues such as food and water insecurity, climate resilience, and economic development.  

The experts exploring policy coherence.

Joining us to share their expertise on Nigeria is Anthony Onoja, Director of Agricultural Economics at the University of Port Harcourt, and IWMI Senior Researcher Charity Osei-Amponsah. Our guests present an argument for tailoring climate policies to support Nigeria’s most vulnerable communities. We also learn about the importance of adequate funding support in ensuring the successful implementation of intersectional sustainable development policy. In addition, we are honored to welcome Michael Adegboye, the deputy director of the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development in Abuja. Together, Adegboye, Onoja, and Osei-Amponsah provide invaluable insights into how policy coherence can be a catalyst for positive change in Nigeria’s socio-economic landscape.
