Osun State Government says it is making progress on its first Climate Action Plan meant to provide a guide for public, private businesses, and households on actions needed to reduce the state’s greenhouse gas emissions.

A consultant to the state governor on Climate Change, Renewable Energy, and Sustainable Development, Prof Chinwe Obuaku, in a statement obtained in Osogbo noted that the document would also assist in protecting the environment from the negative effects of climate change.

He also said work had commenced on the plan since the year 2023 with the governor’s creation of an Advisory Council and the state’s representation at COP28, adding that the plan would be forwarded to the Osun State House of Assembly for adoption by November 2025.

Obuaku further noted that work done on the action plan during the 24-month drafting process includes; broad research using the best available science, extensive public engagement, and strategic problem-solving to develop a plan that reflects various state priorities and values, and meets the state’s emissions commitments.

According to her, the office of the consultant in collaboration with the Department of Climate Change within the Ministry of Environment and Sanitation would organise and prioritize a range of actions and policies that would help the state climate goals align with those of other states and national plans, and build on the long history of stewardship the state has already demonstrated over the past few decades.
