With the danger of desertification and drought, and its growing threat to lives and livelihoods across Nigeria and the rest of Africa, the United Nations Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator for Nigeria, Mr Matthias Schmale, has called on all Nigerians to forge a new contract with nature.
“Together we can build a more inclusive and sustainable world that leaves no one behind. On this day, let’s begin to see ourselves as caretakers of the precious resource that is land.” Mr Schmale said at the virtual observance of the World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought 2022, under the theme, “Rising up from drought together”, and organised by the UN Information Centre (UNIC), Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), UN Development Programme (UNDP) and the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO).
