Policy workshop report on the project Titled “Empowering Women as Key Leaders in Promoting Community-based Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risks Reduction Initiatives in Niger Delta Region” Compiled by Osagie Aitokhuehi

This policy workshop was organized by CPED and was the last activity of the above project which lasted for three years. It was an action research project implemented in 10 LGAs of Delta state namely Aniocha North, Ika South, Ethiope East, Ndokwa East, Isoko South, Sapele, Warri South, Burutu, Patani & Ughelli South. The project which was implemented by the Centre for Population and Environmental Development (CPED) in collaboration with Intervention Council for Women in Africa (ICWA) and the Delta State Government through the Ministry of Environment (DMoE) was financially supported by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), a crown corporation of the Government of Canada.

The policy workshop which took place via zoom, provided an avenue for policy experts and scholars to debate, cross-examine, and re-evaluate problems that are directly relevant to public policy, allowing government decision-makers to put their ideas to the test. Present at the workshop were directors in the ministries of environment, agriculture and natural resources, and health, representatives of some departments in 10 LGs councils, project team members, project mentees, project staff, members of the Community Project Implementation Committees (CPIC), research assistants, representatives of some media houses, representatives of some CSOs and others.
