Flood, Climate Change Spark Food Crisis Fears In Nigeria

Flood, climate change spark food crisis fears in Nigeria

As Nigeria goes into 2023 with focus on the general elections, stakeholders have advised the Federal Government to mitigate the impact of floods and climate change on food security.

 

They include financial experts, farmers, local and international organisations, and humanitarian groups.

 

There are food crisis fears due to the flooding in 2022 which caused havoc in many States and communities in all regions.

 

More than 600 people have died, and properties worth billions of naira destroyed in rural and urban areas.

 

Equally worrisome is the destruction of thousands of hectares of farmlands in Nigeria and within its neighbours.
