It is the intention of Nigeria to make INDC implementation a central pillar of its development policy. Hence there is an opportunity to integrate climate action and the SDGs with national priorities, policies and plans. We support development of a Roadmap to guide INDC implementation across government and all sectors of the economy. The Implementation Roadmap is a practical guide to help all government ministries, departments and agencies to develop detailed plans for INDC implementation. It provides guidance on:
• Governance and Inter-Ministerial Co-ordination;
• Stakeholder engagement;
• Knowledge Management and Communications (KM&C);
• Developing MDA and sector specific Action Plans;
• Financing including for action plans; and
• Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV).
The Chairman of the House Committee for Climate Change has established a joint committee (with members from both the Senate and House) to develop and pass into law framework legislation to support and drive the climate agenda. NIAF has been asked to work with the Committee to develop climate legislation. The framework can support selection of projects and programs which contribute to a greener economy. The legislation could further help the legislative budgetary process.
