BNRCC project aims to help build informed responses to climate
change in Nigeria by enhancing capacity at the community,
state and national levels to implement effective adaptation
strategies, policies and actions.
The BNRCC project is funded by the CIDA, and will be
managed by the consortium of CUSO and Marbek Resource
Consultants, both of Ottawa, Canada, see (www.cuso.org,
and www.marbek.ca,). It will be implemented in partnership
with the Nigeria Environmental Study/Action Team (NEST).
BNRCC's goal is to reduce poverty and improve living conditions
for Nigeria through better climate change adaptation strategies.
The primary purpose is to build informed responses to
the impacts of climate change through improved livelihood,
health, access to natural resources, equality and governance.
The project is owned by Nigerians and supported by CIDA.
