NACCIMA wants SMEs added to climate fund

The Nigerian Association of Chambers of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture (NACCIMA) has recommended that Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) be factored in and supported under the Climate Support Fund.

This according to the national President of NACCIMA, Ide John C. Udeagbala is to encourage them to mainstream sustainable development and climate supportive action in their operation in the concerted effort by all to reduce carbon emission, since climate change is a business of all.

Udeagbala called for urgent actions by government and other stakeholders including the private sector for the implementation of the recommendations of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) as contained in the 2021 Climate Change Report dated August 9, 2021.

He stressed that the Climate Change report described as ‘Cold Red’ for humanity by the UN Secretary General and a reality check by the UN IPCC deserves close attention against the background that climate change is affecting practically every region of the world and will intensify in years to come.
