Like other developing countries, climate change is hitting Nigeria hard, affecting small scale farmers who work extremely hard to produce nearly everything we eat locally. There is increased suffering from extremes in weather – with either too much rain or not enough – meaning small scale farmers can no longer grow as much as they used to.
With an increasing population but less food being grown, food prices are soaring, leaving millions of families at risk of going to bed hungry. If we do nothing, food prices will continue to soar like our temperatures. We can stop this!
