The Federal Ministry of Environment and Society for Planet and Prosperity (SPP) have announced a project to rate and rank Nigeria’s 36 states’ climate governance performance in July 2024.

The SPP in a statement said the decision was taken during an  inaugural coordination meeting of climate change desk officers from Nigerian states,  with the Department of Climate Change (DCC) of the Federal Ministry of Environment Abuja.

The SPP president, Prof. Chukwumerije Okereke, said the project builds on the mapping of the climate change impact, policy, and action of the states, which was executed by the team last year in collaboration with the DCC and the Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF).

He said the current project will provide a single rating and ranking report of the performance of the 36 states of Nigeria.

Prof. Okereke said the rating and ranking were done based on five governance criteria of climate change governance administrative structure, presence or absence of climate policy and action plan, extent of climate change project implementation; extent of incorporation of climate finance in state budgets and online visibility of state’s climate activities.

He further said the ranking and rating exercise is based on the responses provided by states commissioners, permanent secretaries, and climate desk officers across the 36 states, as well as extensive independent verification done by the research team and the Department of Climate Change staff.
