ELRI’S Research Agenda in respect of Climate Change


  • Many global issues are climate-related and thus may be affected by climate change.  These include food security, availability of water etc.
  • While it is acknowledged that climate change is an inherently global issue, the impacts vary across our planet.  Some nations experience more adverse effects than others.  Some nations however, are benefiting from the fall out of the Climate Change.
  • Poorer nations are more vulnerable as they tend to be more dependent on climate-sensitive sectors (subsistence agriculture) and may lack the resources to buffer themselves against the changes that global warming may bring.
  • Strategies have been developed and continue to evolve to address these issues.
  • For a country like Nigeria with serious challenges of resource management, high level of poverty and severe lack of capacity, there is an urgent need for the implementation of appropriate adaptation measures such as water conservation, urban tree planting, grain storage, wildlife migrating etc.
  •  Regrettably, there are substantial limits and barriers to adaptation strategies.  These includes: economics, environmental, information, social, attitudinal and behavioral barriers that are not yet fully understood.
  • ELRI’s research agenda is to provide solutions to the identified limits and barriers. Some of the questions currently being addressed are what is the current state of adaptation options? What are the goals of the different adaptation options? What factors affect their successful implementation?
