Nigeria's NDC includes economic and social development goals as primary objectives, including an improved standard of living, electricity access for all, and an economic growth rate of five percent per year. The Government has developed sector-based NDC implementation plans that outline approaches to achieving sector targets. The Government is also looking to reduce emissions from the waste sector, in addition to other core sectors implied in the NDC. Nigeria has the strong potential to engage a robust and active private sector as well as a strong system to decentralize action to the 36 states and the federal capital city to achieve NDC targets. In response to the Government’s request for support, the Partnership has mobilized support to engage the private sector, develop the waste sector for inclusion into national emission reduction targets and build capacity at the sub-national level, across Nigeria’s decentralized regions and states.
