CAAP Climate Actors Accelerator Programme 2024
The United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network Nigeria (UN SDSN Nigeria) recognizes the significant threat of climate change and its consequences as a result of the triple planetary emergency – which includes the rising global temperatures, habitat loss leading to the extinction of species, and ongoing pollution of air, land, and water.
Climate Actors Accelerator Programme (CAAP) is specifically designed for young innovators and change-makers between the ages of 18 and 35, who are passionate about proffering solutions to the global climate crisis, thus creating a liveable environment toward a net-zero future. This knowledge-sharing and innovation programme offers a comprehensive approach to creating a sustainable future through advanced training, bootcamp, environmental campaigns, clean-up efforts, tree-planting activities, ecological tours and innovative thinking.
The goal of this programme is to develop a network of young talents that would pioneer transformative solutions to restore and protect our planet and ecosystem. We believe these solutions would address the critical issues of climate change mitigation and adaptation, promotion of our natural and cultural heritage, biodiversity conservation, waste and pollution, and responsible production and consumption, to make our environment and human settlements inclusive, resilient, and sustainable.
