Given the media’s pivotal role in the society, a Non-Government Organisation (NGO), Coastal Cities at Risk (CCaR) Project is seeking effective communication and agenda for enhancing resilience to climate change in Lagos State. 

In a workshop organized for practicing journalists in the state held at the National Broadcast Academy in Lagos, the group said that resilience to flood risk in Lagos is highly dependent on the provision of a functioning basic infrastructure and social services. The group, also underscored the need for structural measures in enhancing the capacity of vulnerable communities.

The overall objective of the Coastal Cities at Risk (CCaR) Program is to develop the knowledge base and enhance the capacity of mega-cities to successfully adapt to and when necessary cope with risks posed by the effects of climate change, including sea level rise, in the context of urban growth and development.
