Mitigation actions

Installation of Solar Boreholes, Solar Refrigerators and Solar Water Heating system in Primary Healthcare Centres in Delta State
The solar radiation in Nigeria is about 5.535KWh per square meter per day with an average of six to nine hours sunshine per day, having an abundant sunshine all year round with the location of the country within the humid tropical region. Solar installations have tremendous advantages over other alternative energy sources. It is a reliable, domestic, robust renewable resource with large undeveloped potential and it emits essentially none of the atmospheric emissions that are of growing concern. After a successful pilot projects in three primary healthcare centres in the State, the Delta State TACC programme seeks to put in place, an integrated solar installation comprise of solar borehole, solar refrigerator and solar water heating system in 150 primary healthcare centres spread across the State. This will bring about effective sterilization of equipments and preservation of vaccines couple with the emission reduction potential of the project. Start year

Installation of Biogas Digester that turns Kitchen Waste to Cooking Gas in Urban/ Semi Urban towns in Delta State
The lack of access to affordable and efficient energy for cooking and other household need keeps huge mass of people in a poverty trap. In Delta State of Nigeria, people still have to depend on traditional means of energy to fulfill most of their energy needs and the effect of traditional source of energy for cooking is contributing immensely to global warming. The Delta State Territorial Approach to Climate Change Programme (TACC) carried out Quick Win (Pilot) project on Installation of Biogas Digesters that turns kitchen waste to cooking gas as an alternative source of household energy in urban/ semi urban towns in the State. The successful pilot project is being up scaled to 50 urban towns with each towns having about 100units of Biogas Digester installed. Start year

Delta State Green Economy Commission
It is a known fact that oil is the mainstay of the state economy and has generated many opportunities but also some problems. Delta State now aspires to create a future that transforms the current environmental problems into opportunities. It is the desire of the Government to see the Delta State Green Economy Commission set up and work in unison with existing ministries to continue all consultations on low-carbon development issues. The major functions of the future commission could include: research and development, regulatory/policy making, capacity building, project initiation and implementation, and mobilization of finance.

Territorial Approach to Climate Change(TACC) Programme/Biosand Water Filter Project.
The Biosand water filter project aims to increase access to clean drinking water, reduce instances of water-borne illnesses, as well as limit local environmental damage caused by the use of fuel wood. To these ends, a pilot project of distributing both Hydraid and locally constructed Biosand water filters were deployed to 52 selected households each in the small riveting communities of Akugbene and Ashama in Delta State, with each household having an average of six members. The project is expected to be up scaled to other communities as funds are made available. Start year

Territorial Approach to Climate Change(TACC) Programme / Solar powered Boreholes and Water Heaters in Primary Healthcare Centers across the State
It was observed that most of the Primary Health-Care Centres (PHCs) in the rural communities uses the traditional tripod burner or kerosene stoves to heat water for treatment and sterilization which emits GHGs. This project intends to provide portable water and hot water for the PHCs for treatment and sterilization through the use of renewable energy to promote effective health delivery and at the same time reduce the emission of GHGs. Upscaling the project to over 100 Primary Health-Care Centres (PHCs) spread across the rural communities in Delta State will provide clean and portable water through renewable energy intervention for about 10,000 (ten thousand) rural women and children and also hot water for the PHCs for treatment and sterilization of clinical instruments, thereby enhancing effective health delivery in the PHCs. The pilot scheme has been successfully installed in four (4) communities PHCs - Okoamakom, Ibusa, Ogbe-Ijoh and Jesse Start year

Adaptation actions

Provision of Biosand Water Filter in Riverine Commmunity in Delta State
"Rural Communities in Delta State lack access to safe water. They depend on rivers and streams as source of water for drinking and other domestic purposes. Communities without streams and rivers result to ‘Rain Water Harvesting’ where rain water is harvested through channels into an underground reservoir called “well”. This situation exposes the vulnerable groups especially children in the community to communicable diseases such as diarrhoea, typhoid etc. which may in turn lead to other socio-economic effects such as loss of income, poor work turnouts, etc. In a bid to address this ugly situation, the Delta State TACC programme successfully piloted the installation of 100 Bio-sand Water filter in two riverine communities in the State and intends to up-scale the project to 50 rural/riverine communities distributing about 400 units per community. This Household Water Treatment techniques treat water that has become contaminated at the source as well as through domestic handling, with the goal of reducing the contamination to a level of low risk. The installation of the bio-sand water filter was accompanied by training and retraining of the beneficiaries on the installation and use of the filters and also with sensitization campaigns/ awareness creation on the importance of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH). A Bio-sand Water Filter uses simple filtration technology. The bio-sand filter treats polluted water with a biological layer covering the top layer of the sand bed. Start year

Delta State Climate Change Policy
The TACC program conducted baseline assessment of the biophysical and socioeconomic factors underpinning climate change impacts in Delta State. This assessment identified the communities in Delta State most vulnerable to climate change and the appropriate GHG mitigation and adaptation options. The aforementioned activity leads to the development of the Delta State Climate Change Policy which creates the enabling environment for climate change mitigation and adaptation projects that emphasizes reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in all sectors of the economy, the creation of green Jobs and the embarking on conservation based empowerment programmes for environmental sustainability.

Replacing the traditional Tripod cookstoves with Eco Stoves in Rural community in Delta State
The majority of Delta State’s rural communities have no access to alternative sources of household energy, and rely heavily on fuel wood for cooking and boiling of water. According to the World Health Organization, It is well known that indoor air pollution from burning of fuel wood leads to respiratory and other health problems, so replacing the traditional tripod cook stoves with energy efficiency Eco stoves (that uses less wood and produce less smoke) will in no small measure have positive impact on the health of the people.

Material Recovery Facility, Warri
The fact that most of our streets and major roads are littered with pockets of refuse while our dumpsites are in bizarre states are inimical to Delta State’s desire to pursue clean, healthy and sustainable environment. This prompts the provision of Integrated Waste Management Facility (1,000tonnes) that will receive and process waste within Asaba metropolis. The operation in the integrated waste facility covers Sorting, Recycling, Composting, Incineration and Residue Management. The project is intended to reduce GHGs emission such as methane, etc and its expected to be replicated in other urban metropolis. Start year
