The Fresh & Young Brains Development Initiative (FBIN), an non governmental Organisation in Nigeria says it has trained 86 young farmers on climate resilient agriculture in seven states and the FCT.
FBIN Founder, Ms Nikiruka Nnaemego-Okonkwo, stated this at a “Mock Parliament on Climate Resilience Agriculture” in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
She said the essence of the training was to build a “climate resilient generation” among vulnerable youths and undergraduates from the states and the FCT.
“We have seen the negative impact of climate change on farmers. Once their farms are affected, they lose everything and this affects their income.
“So, we designed this programme to teach young farmers on agricultural methods and techniques that are resilient climate change.
“The training also covered climate change adaption, personal development and agribusiness, and we targeted youths in Anambra, Enugu, Benue, Kogi, Kaduna, Rivers, Imo and the FCT,” she said.
She called on the Federal Government, civil society organisations and the media to join in the campaign to create more awareness on climate change adaptation in the country.
