Policy Brief on the Introduction of Environmental Education in Secondary and Tertiary Institutions

Nigeria is one of the countries suffering from impacts of climate change.

The changing climate is driven by man-induced activities on the earth surface. Currently, the negative impacts of this climate change are desert encroachment, threat to livelihood and food security therefore giving rise to climate-conflict, displacement etc.

To reverse this trend, everyone starting from government to the least citizen has a role to play. This policy brief presents a case for the expansion of the current educational curriculum to incorporate environmental education as subject rather than a topic so as to catalyze a new generation of environmental vanguards who will work towards the sustainability of the environment.
