Buni seeks UNDP’s collaboration to address effect of climate change 

Gov. Mai Mala Buni of Yobe has solicited partnership with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), to address effect of climate change.

Buni stated this during a courtesy visit by Mr Moncef Kartas, UNDP Head of North-East sub-region,  on Tuesday in Damaturu.

“Let me share with you one other major area of concern to the government of Yobe, that is, the effect of climate change on the state.

“We are faced with the twin challenge of desert encroachment and flood.

“The state is loosing sizeable of its part to desert encroachment and also recording huge loss to yearly flood.

“I will like our partnership to look into these two natural disasters with a view to explore avenues of checking these threats. To safeguard our people and their means of livelihood,” he said.

He said the activities of UNDP had brought the state closer to achieving Sustainable Development Goals.

“I can say we share a common vision of bringing Yobe state ever so closer to achieving SDGs.
