According to the United Kingdom, the consequences of climate change will prevent Nigerians from cultivating on roughly 25% of their farmlands.
Additionally, it was noted that the country’s capacity to realize its full potential in the agricultural sector would be hampered by a lack of infrastructure, security issues, and the business environment. In a speech titled “Riding the Global Ag-Downturn via Viable International Partnerships” at the Feed Nigeria Summit in Abuja, the United Kingdom’s High Commissioner for Nigeria, Catriona Laing, revealed this.
According to her, between 10% and 25% of the land that is being cultivated would become unusable due to climate change.
She emphasized that food insecurity had been most severe in Africa and that the current problem is expected to worsen, according to the United Nations and other organizations.
