EnviroNews Nigeria, Nigeria

Nigeria can attract more global funding to tackle the array of environmental disasters affecting different parts of the country by keying into the five focal areas of the Global Environment Facility (GEF), the body in charge of all donor funds for addressing pressing environmental issues.

This was the submission of senior officials of the GEF while interacting with fellows of the Internews’ Earth Journalism Network (EJN), who are covering the ongoing sixth GEF Assembly in Da Nang City, Vietnam.

Correspondent Innocent Onoh, who is among the fellows, reports that environmental projects by countries which are executed with global funds are decided at the GEF Assembly that is held every four years.
