The Federal Government has expressed worry over the mounting pressure on natural resources due to the impact of climate change.

Permanent Secretary, Ecological Project Office, Habiba Lawal, who spoke in Abuja during a courtesy visit by the course participants of the National Institute of Security Studies to her office for an interactive session in Abuja, said population explosion had also led to insecurity and conflicts, undermining peace in Africa as a result of pressure on resources.

She urged the NISS to develop and implement policies that would checkmate climate change-related conflicts across boundaries in Africa.

She said the 5th Assessment Report of Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change explicitly showed the world was warming faster than estimated before and that humans caused most of such change.

“The effects of climate change are widespread and significant, affecting agriculture, energy, human health, terrestrial and marine ecosystems among others, especially in Africa,” she said.
