doors and furniture in most buildings, in Nigeria, are made of wood. With the decreasing rainfall amount and duration, frequent drought and desertification, drought, resistant and short duration high yielding crops, should be developed and made available to, farmers. It is on this, premise that this study took an overview of the, impacts of climate change in Nigeria with the aim. stated in “limate hange Effects- Where to with the period of sharp temperature rise (Fig 2). It is recommended that public enlightenment/ sensitization on climate change should be initiated given the environmental devastation consequent upon it. Climate change impacts rising sea levels. nigeria’s national action plan (nap) to reduce short-lived climate pollutants (slcps) Worldwide, the consumption of water is doubling every 20 years - more than twice the rate of increase in population, placing enormous pressures on aquatic ecosystems. Policy-makers should encourage, energy efficiency and other climate-friendly trends. Licensed under CC BY-SA 3.0 IGO License statement/permission on Wikimedia Commons. The main objective of the research was to discover the extent to which small-scale potato and maize crops farming businesses in Deventer have become resilient to climate change, examine the enabling factors, determine further needs, and propose a strategic model for increased resilience practice among the farming communities. We estimate the effects of climate variability and change on agricultural revenues of small-scale farmers in Kenya. Effects of climate change go beyond individual households. This study thus reinforces the existence of climate risk in the area, enables increased public participation in policy formulation, simplifies the present complex process in the delivery of urban development goals, and supports achieving the goal of building a society resilient to climate risk. Exactly how the oceans capture and bury CO2 is the subject of intense research[44] by scientists worldwide, such as the Carboocean Project. The, information from these sources was displayed for, analysis using flow and pie charts and time series, The temperature trend in Nigerian since 1901, shows increasing pattern (Fig 2). Such water transfer will definitely, increase the volume and also the area coverage, of the Lake. In Nigeria, many rivers have, been reported to have dried up or are becoming, more seasonally navigable while Lake Chad, Lake Chad in the year 2000 is just 5.7% of 1963, fact that Lake Chad has shrunk by 95% since the, largest lake in the planet in 1960, but by 2007 it, Fig. Buadi, and Ahmed (2006) had similar result when they, reported that rainstorms claimed 42 lives in, Between 1950 and 2000, the increasing frequency, and intensity of rainstorms have created enor-, mous damages estimated at $87 billion in property, losses, $19 billion in crop losses and losses of, over 12,000 human lives in the United States of, continue to impact negatively on agriculture and, food security especially in tropical and subtropical, regions because greenhouse gas emissions would, increase the risk of hunger by additional 80 million, change has led to a shift in crops cultivated in, northern Nigeria. is reducing the arable land of the coastal plains, the desert encroachment with its associated sand, dunes is depriving farmers of their agricultural, farmlands and grazing rangelands. Published data from. Climate change destabilises the Earth’s temperature equilibrium and has far-reaching effects on human beings and the environment. Climate change. Rainfall data from 28 stations for the period of 1970 – 2002 were collected from the Nigeria Meteorological Station, Lagos. Climatic forcing includes historical and archaeological evidence, greenhouse gases, aerosols human activity solar variation, orbital irregularities, deforestation and radioactive factors. This paper explores the energy status in Malaysia to highlight the advantages of fuel cells as an advanced alternative energy source. Odjugo (2008) notes that, rainstorms did not only increase, they also killed, 199 people and destroyed property worth N, billion in Nigeria between 1992 and 2007. Negative Impacts of Climate Change on Nigeria. To understand the effects on food security in a country or a region, the “food system” concept is useful. The short-dry-season popularly, experienced more in the month of July as against, August. As a result, the distribution,[12] productivity, and species composition of global fish production is changing,[13] generating complex and inter-related impacts[14] on oceans, estuaries, coral reefs, mangroves and sea grass beds that provide habitats and nursery areas for fish. This in turn limits the growth of diatoms in favour of smaller phytoplankton that are poorer biological pumps of carbon. Understanding climate. A Communication, Paper presented at the International Confe-. The results among others show that rainfall decreases from 1350 mm (1941–1970) to 1276 mm (1970–2002). Sea level rise and ocean surge are the major potential impacts of climate change in the rapidly growing urban Lagos in Nigeria. ... For him, a change in climate usually takes place over a long period of time of at least 150 years, with clear and permanent impacts on the ecosystem. The, increasing temperature has led to increased land-, based ice instability and its melting. Over-fished populations have less size, genetic diversity, and age than other populations of fish. The main purpose of this paper is to examine climate change and sustainable development in Nigeria. The time series was used. The results indicate a good knowledge of climate change within the area, although the level of public participation in urban development efforts and climate change adaptation remained poor. ... As a result, global warming has caused significant disruption to natural habitats and human life processes. This paper examines the impact of climate change and anthropogenic factors on desertification in the semi-arid region of Nigeria. While the various carbon finance instruments include restoration of forests (REDD) and producing clean energy (emissions trading), few address the need to finance healthy ocean and aquatic ecosystems although these are essential for continued uptake of CO2 and GHGs. Greenhouse gas reduction and adaptive measures were recommended. The integrated findings from ecological experiments, mechanistic models of landscape dynamics, socio-economic land-use models, policy analysis and transdisciplinary stakeholder interactions are presented consecutively. A strategic climate-resilience model has been developed, and if adopted/adapted, can help to increase the climate resilience capacity of the small-scale crop producers. This paper investigates the impact of climate change on global and regional water resources. Synthesis report for policymakers http: //, www.ipcc.ch/pdf/assessment-report/ar4/syr/ar4_, Jagtap S 2007. Chapter 3, Meeting the Promise and Challenge of Sustainable Aquaculture, Climate change: It’s now or never to save coral reefs, "Oceanic sources, sinks, and transport of atmospheric CO, "Blue Carbon. ability held at Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Enugu, Odjugo PAO 1999. Some recommendations were made to reverse this ugly situation. MANAGEMENT SUMMARY [20] This makes them more susceptible to environment related stress, including those resulting from climate change. The impacts of climate change on ocean systems has impacts on the sustainability of fisheries and aquaculture, on the livelihoods of the communities that depend on fisheries, and on the ability of the oceans to capture and store carbon (biological pump). The World Health Organization (WHO) has calculated that by 2020 human-trigerred climate change could kill 300,000 people worldwide every year. Sea-level rise is observed to have, desert encroachment is reducing arable lands from. Surface water bodies were also, observed to be drying up, for example, Lake Chad, rainstorms were observed to kill 199 people and, destroyed property worth N85.03 billion in Nigeria, While the activities of the developed nations. A Summary of a New Scientific Analysis", "Blue Carbon. Although the length of time it takes for change in climate to manifest matters, the level of deviations from the normal and its impacts on the ecology are most paramount. Hengeveld H, Whitewood B 2005. Nigeria In order to minimize the negative impact of climate change on the ecosystems, water resources, socioeconomic domains, a number of adaptation measures are open to Nigeria. The effect of temperature on welfare may be associated with the heat-related ailments. While the vegetation map of Nigeria between 1973 and 1995 forms the basis of biodiversity change analysis. This has led to increasing evapotranspiration and water stress resulting in the drying up of rivers and lakes. loud cover is difficult. Here we present an inter- and transdisciplinary analysis of global change impacts on EGS provision in a European mountain region. This value is higher than 0.29% annual reduction indicated by. water resources; global and regional analysis.. impact in Nigeria: Emphasis on wind and rainstorms. We have also been able to detect oil spill on -shore using optical image. There is a common assumption that the world's water supply is virtually inexhaustible. We discuss our simulation results with respect to both existing policy networks and transdisciplinary stakeholder interactions. While Januaries and Decembers have shown little increase in temperature between 1961 and 2018, other months especially March/April and June/July (which are wet season and dry season planting periods, respectively) have shown significant rise in temperature within the same period. onafalujo@yahoo.com ABSTRACT In these countries the limit system has successfully helped in fishing industries. Investment on, improved agricultural technology, which should, include the manufacturing and establishment of, storage facilities, are very necessary. For the population this could result in increased water and food insecurity, higher exposure to heat The study investigated the perception and extent to which the people of Awka South local government area are knowledgeable about climate change and related issues. Investment in sustainable aquaculture[40] can buffer water use in agriculture while producing food and diversifying economic activities. [27], Fisheries and aquaculture contribute significantly to food security and livelihoods. [Global Jnl Environ Sci Vol.2(2) 2003: 118-127]. The worst impact, is population displacement, which may result in, communal crisis. Indeed, prior to 2012, when flooding engulfed nearly threequarters of the states of Nigeria, including Enugu, occurrences of flooding were spasmodic, especially as a result of obsolescent drainage systems which no longer convey rain water to streams and rivers, resulting to heavy overland flows which hardly lasted much longer. Average sea level around the world rose about 8 inches (20 cm) in the past 100 years; climate scientists expect it to rise more and more rapidly in the next 100 years as part of climate change impacts. There is also a significant relationship between level of education and knowledge of climate change, whereas there is no relationship between occupation of respondents and knowledge of socio-economic effects of climate change. area are expected to have a low to moderate vulnerability to climate change, but are likely to experience extreme stresses from local land-based human activities, especially when these activities are combined with the pressures caused by climate change. There has been continuous increase in the level of CO2 in atmosphere. Desert encroachment, coastal inundations, drying up of surface waters and shift in crops cultivated over time were also noticed. Data were collected with the aid of questionnaires complemented with an interview schedule. The Sahara desert is observed to, be expanding to all directions trying to engulf the, Sahellian region of Africa with annual expansion, 2007). Two hundred and seven respondents were drawn using a combination of multi-stage and simple random sampling techniques. If human activities that deplete, the ozone layer are to a very large extent reduced, and the carbon sinks are well-managed and, protected, then the on-going global warming will, greenhouse gases, clean and environment friend-, ly technologies are needed. The governor boasted that Lagos had reached a GDP of $136 billion in 2017, which is about a third of the entire country’s GDP. A shift in crops cultivated by farmers from long, to short duration is also noticed. This inhibits the ability of the ocean ecosystems to sequester carbon as the oceans warm. Analysis of Climate Change Impacts on Agriculture. This will be done by building Ghana’s capacity in the area of infrastructure, knowledge to deal with climate change impacts and reduce vulnerability in key sectors, ecosystems, districts and … In Romania, for instance, extreme weather events have multiplied since 2002. urghila et al. Despite the challenges of climate change, the Netherlands is a world success in agriculture and food production. Over 500 million people in developing countries depend, directly or indirectly, on fisheries and aquaculture for their livelihoods - aquaculture is the world's fastest growing food production system, growing at 7% annually and fish products are among the most widely traded foods, with more than 37% (by volume) of world production traded internationally.[31]. Nigeria showing evidences of a changing climate. Statistical analysis was accomplished by the use of descriptive and inferential statistics. in coping with climate change. Efficiency can also be improved upon by provi-, Development Mechanisms” is needed from the, developed countries. The city is also a major transportation hub, with multiple ports and a major international airport an… Review of Climate Change and Its effect on Nigeria Ecosystem Olaniyi O.A.1, Olutimehin I.O.2, Funmilayo O.A.3 1,2Joseph Ayo Babalola University, Ikeji, Arakeji, Osun State, Nigeria 3Adeyemi College of Education, Ore-Ondo Road, Ondo, Nigeria Abstract— This paper examines Moreover, the, frequent droughts and lesser rains have started, shortening the growing season thereby causing, crops failure and food shortage. NWACHUKWU, C.I. ... For instance, Wight (2005) notes that since 1855, global average temperature has shown periods of cooling and warming but in general has increased by 0.6 o C annually. Moreover, bush, burning either for hunting, farm clearing or by, herdsmen to facilitate the sprouting of fresh, grasses for their animals to graze on should be, stopped. Although there is a general decrease in rainfall in, Nigeria, the coastal areas of Nigeria like W, Brass and Calabar are observed to be experiencing, slightly increasing rainfall in recent times (Odjugo, 2005, 2007). In the case of Atlantic cod located in the Baltic Sea, which are stressed close to their upper limits, this could lead to consequences related to the population's average size and growth. Another adverse effect of climate change is extreme weather and sea levels. Climate change in Africa is an increasingly serious threat for Africans as Africa is among the most vulnerable continents to climate change. The thawing, increasing rainfall in some parts of the world and, expansion of the oceans as water warms has, started impacting on sea level rise, coastal, inundation and erosion. region of the Atlantic Ocean to Northern Nigeria, then that of water will not be too difficult a task to, achieve. seriously threatened by a metre rise of sea-level. The major effects of social exclusion on the climate change adaptation of female arable crop farmers includes poor access to credit facilities to enhance adaptation activities (x = 2.8), lack of ownership to landfor increasedfarm size (x = 2.8), and inadequate access to important agricultural equipment and inputs for better adaptation (x = 2.7). Two hypotheses were formulated and tested using chi-square statistics. Just and equitable decisions on appropriate responses to climate change can only be reached by giving consideration to all those affected by policy actions (or inactions), including future generations. In a recent study, a national-level assessment of the likely future impacts of climate change on agriculture was, Small Island and Low Lying Developing Sates of the Caribbean produce less than 1 per cent of the total global greenhouse gas emissions, but bear an overwhelmingly disproportionate level of risk associated with the impacts of climate change. Roofing materials. Mean annual and monthly temperature and rainfall data were collected from the Nigerian Meteorological Agency and some States' airports for a period of 105 years (1901-2005). With cleaner atmosphere which will lead to self-, sustaining ozone layer rebuilding, the current rate, of global warming will be drastically reduced and, its effects on humans and the ecosystem will with. EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE ON HEALTH RISKS IN NIGERIA Eke Patrick Omoruyi Department of Accounting and Finance, Lagos state University, Ojo, Lagos State. Model simulation (GCMs) The … On the basis of this experimentation, we have proposed a hypothetical method, using above mentioned fluidized bed column and biochar as adsorbent to reduce the CO2 concentration in the highly polluted regions. Greater rates and degrees of climate change increase the likelihood of exceeding adaptation limits and make satisfactory adaptation much costlier and difficult, if not impossible. Special Issue August, 2008. threat of rising seas and bigger hurricanes. The on-going plan to supply water to the, disappearing Lake Chad from the Congo Basin, should be intensified and brought into fruition, within the shortest possible time. low level of coping capabilities (Nwafor 2007; Jagtap 2007). This article incorporates text from a free content work. settlements in Bayelsa, Delta, Cross River, Rivers, and Lagos States of Nigeria. on-going climate change (Odjugo 2001a; 2005; Odjugo and Ikhuoria 2003; NEST 2003; Chindu, 2007). As the country strives to meet the food consumption needs of its rapidly growing population, agriculture in the country (as in the rest of sub-Saharan Africa) is expected to be among the hardest hit by climate change (Parry et al. Climate change and its effects on ecosystems, habitats and biota. Researches have shown that Nigeria, is already being plagued with diverse ecological, problems, which have been directly linked to the. Lake Annecy had the lowest amount of nutrition levels and responded comparatively poorly. technology, with emphasis on space science. to what the world accomplishes with climate change mitigation. change impact on plant species composition in six. There are different types of scenarios for the analysis of impacts of climate change on ... • This approach was used in Nigeria to simulate the impact of climate change on maize and roots and tubers production. The production of crops and livestock other than pigs in Sub-Saharan Africa is typically located in semiarid regions (Barrios et al. The impacts of global warming on. [29] The specific effects of climate change on these parameters will vary widely depending on the characteristics of the area, with some areas benefiting from the shift in trends and some areas being harmed based on the factors of exposure, sensitivity, and ability to respond to said changes. Yields of traditional crops, such as cassava, will be less affected by climate change, because of its ability to achieve at least some yield in the worst weather years. The, natural processes are the astronomical and the, extraterrestrial factors. mitigating the effects of climate change in sub-saharan africa via an effective international legal standard: a case study of nigeria (doctoral dissertation) by olubisi friday oluduro promoter: prof. dr. luc lavrysen academic session 2014-2015 Wither Nigeria in another 50 years? The impacts of climate change in Nigeria could include rising temperatures, more intense and frequent extreme weather events and sea level rise. Odjugo (2005, 2007), observe that the number of rain days dropped by, 53% in the north-eastern Nigeria and 14% in the, Niger-Delta Coastal areas. © 2008-2020 ResearchGate GmbH. The interviews were conducted in six family farming communities in Deventer. The global warming and, decreasing rainfall together with the erratic pattern, of rainfall produce a minimal recharge of, groundwater resources, wells, lakes and rivers in, most parts of the world especially in Africa thereby, creating water crisis. 1970s, and the pattern has continued till date. Third, our modeling results reveal the complex trade-offs associated with the different scenarios. If the developed world can immediately implement, deep emission cuts and reduce their rate of water, pollution while the developing countries practice, clean technology and reduce their rate of, deforestation and enhance their afforestation, programmes, then the rate of carbon sinks will be. The results among others show that while temperature has been on the increase, rainfall has been decreasing. Heat waves, droughts, rising sea levels, and extreme storms disproportionately affect women . A savanna climate, with marked wet and dry seasons, prevails in the north and west, while a steppe climate with little precipitation is found in the far north. Fish populations of skipjack tuna and bigeye tuna are expected to be displaced further to the east due to the effects of climate change on ocean temperatures and currents. Mahomet, Illinois: Changnon Climatologist, pp. Consequently, the concepts of climate change, sustainable development, barriers and strategies are identified. Global climate change: The driver of, multiple causes of flood intensity in Sub-Saharan, rence on Climate Change and Economic Sustain-. We clarify that the recommendations outlined in RV2012 were not intended as a recipe for multi-scale adaptation, but rather a set of actions that are required to diagnose and develop adaptation actions particularly at governmental levels in coordination with national and international adaptation initiatives. This means more water for irrigation. Indisputably, climate change is humanity's most significant challenge, and we cannot afford to ignore it any longer. An expected increase in temperatures will cause moisture to evaporate more quickly, spelling trouble for crops. Just and equitable decisions on appropriate responses to climate change can only be reached by giving consideration to all those affected by policy actions (or inactions), including future generations. The lack of oxygen in warmer waters will possibly lead to the extinction of aquatic animals[30], Worldwide food security may not change significantly, however rural and poor populations would be disproportionately and negatively affected based on this criteria, as they lack the resources and manpower to rapidly change their infrastructure and adapt. This prompted this study that took a general overview of climate change impacts in Nigeria. Study findings have implications for farming policy regulations, conceptual understanding, farming practices, and further research in the area. CS1 maint: multiple names: authors list (. While there is a general decrease in rainfall in Nigeria, the coastal area is experiencing slight increase. The need to reduce social exclusion suffered by female arable crop farmers in Abia State as a way of enhancing their climate change adaptive capacity prompted this study. Several international agencies, including the World Bank and the Food and Agriculture Organization[35] have programs to help countries and communities adapt to global warming, for example by developing policies to improve the resilience[36] of natural resources, through assessments of risk and vulnerability, by increasing awareness[37] of climate change impacts and strengthening key institutions, such as for weather forecasting and early warning systems. While data on the global impacts of climate change is available, those at regional levels are scanty and scattered. among others. Climate change policies that therefore take By the 2020, 2050, 2080s the total population that will face increasing water stress due to climate change will be 2.3, 3.2 and 3.7 billion respectively. Under a high emissions scenario, diarrhoeal deaths attributable to climate change in children under 15 years old is projected to The basic goal of the NCCAS is to increase Ghana’s resilience to climate change impacts now and in the future. Asked Questions About Climate Change Science. cultivated over time were also noticed. The result shows that the atmospheric concentration of most greenhouse gases (GHGs) is increasing and this has resulted to changing global climate with increasing temperature. Climatological implications of en-, vironmental degradation on sustainable human. There are key risks, spanning sectors, and regions. Access scientific knowledge from anywhere. 2) Effects of climate change on crop production in Nigeria. [50], If there was a specific amount of fish that people were allowed to catch then this could very well solve the problem of over fishing. Malaysia, as a developing country, also requires significant energy to drive economic development and address population demand. will experience reduction in water stress. Some of the worst flooding in recent memory happened five years ago in March 2012 when 32 of Nigeria… Temperature. While the choice, groundnut and maize, they were millet, maize and, bean by 2007. It was recommended that formal education of women, skill acquisition and empowerment programmes for women, and enlightenment by extension and advisory services on the implications of social exclusion could aid in the reduction of social exclusion amongst female arable crop farmers. The urgency for adaptation is highlighted by projections from the three reports produced by the IPCC in 2007 (IPCC 2007). For instance, a, atmosphere is about 22,000 times that of CO, respect to tropospheric zone depletion. [15][16] After the Last Glacial Maximum of about 21,000 years ago, the global average air temperature has risen approximately 3 degrees, leading to an increase in sea temperatures. CLIMATE change is a worldwide phenomenon but a second look at the topic suggests that Nigeria may be immune from it. This will, help to store excess agricultural produce for future, use. Climate change adaptation is extremely important in Nigeria. The effects of climate change are significant in today's society and will have a tremendous impact on human life across the world. This is a clear evidence of climate, change because a notable impact of climate, change is, increasing rainfall in most coastal areas, and decreasing rains in the continental interiors, (IPCC 1996; NEST 2003).
