The Nigerian Conservation Foundation (NCF) and the Network of Civil Society Organisations in the Lake Chad Basin (North-East Nigeria) in collaboration with the World Humanitarian Action Forum (WHAF) host a workshop in Abuja on 26th & 27th August, 2019 with the theme “Resilience Agenda: Natural Disasters and Climate Change – How are we managing risks and crises differently in North-East Nigeria?”
The aim of the workshop is to take stock of how climate change is being addressed as a risk factor for disasters, what adaptation measures are being implemented, action-oriented discussion to formulate concrete practical steps to overcome challenges and make a difference to people affected by crisis.
The workshop is expected to identify concrete areas in which NCF and other groups could collaborate to address Disaster Risk Reduction and build the resilience of communities in the zone.
The outcome of the workshop will feed into discussions at the WHAF 2019. WHAF is a project that aims to enhance partnership and collaboration among humanitarian actors from the global North and South and to share effective humanitarian practices and responses that affect local, national and international NGOs.
