Solar Energy/Energy-Saving Lightbulbs - Amuwo-Odofin Local Government Area
  • Start year: 2012
  • Type: Technical/Infrastructure investment
  • Status: Completed

The local government ensured that all offices use energysaving bulbs and retrofit office blocks to green standards that increase energy savings, reduce water consumption and facilitate cross-ventilations that reduce energy consumption for
cooling the facility. The local government will extend these efforts to other communities in its jurisdiction, mandating that every house switch to energy-saving bulbs. At present, the local government’s principal health center is solar powered and plans are underway to insure that all street lighting migrates to solar power.

Clean-Cook Stoves - Amuwo-Odofin Local Government Area
  • Start year: 2012
  • Type: Technical/Infrastructure investment
  • Status: Completed

This project was launched to reduce dependence on firewood
for domestic use and as an energy source. The project
is an offshoot of the tree planting campaign that discourages
felling trees for firewood. Clean-cook stoves run on ethanol,
derived from aerobic fermentation of agricultural by-products
such as cassava and waste, among others. The local government
is working on large-quantity clean cook stove distribution
and is setting up a bio-diesel refinery, to assure adequate
ethanol supplies for powering stoves. Clean-cook stoves will
reduce deforestation and reduce fossil fuel use

Train the Trainers - Amuwo-Odofin Local Government Area
  • Start year: 2012
  • Type: Education/Awareness Raising
  • Status: Completed

Training sessions were realized to enhance local climate-change
mitigation and adaptation measures as well as to educate
the young with regard to climate-change challenges. Train the
Trainers brought together major community stakeholders to
address issues of deforestation, tree planting, carbon dioxide
emissions reductions and clean development mechanisms.
Trainees included chairmen and secretaries from 65 community
development associations, NGOs and 22 primary school
principals. We also launched a tree-planting program in support
of a sustainable environment during the training sessions,
and over 500 trees were planted in local government areas
including primary schools.

Tree Planting - Amuwo-Odofin Local Government Area
  • Start year: 2012
  • Type: Policy/Strategies/Action Plans
  • Status: Completed

July 14 was named “Tree-Planting Day” and the local government planted over two hundred trees in addition to 4000 trees planted the previous year. Factoring in the sustainability element, the local government set up a green club to nurture them and oversee their growth. The aim of the project is to help mitigate against some climate change impacts by absorbing excess atmospheric CO2 mostly derived from vehicular and energy generation emissions. A handbook published by the local government’s Climate Change Unit was distributed.

Mosquito Net and Malaria Medicines Free Distribution - Amuwo-Odofin Local Government Area
  • Start year: 2012
  • Type: Technical/Infrastructure investment
  • Status: Completed

The advent of global warming has led to unprecedented flooding
which in turn has lead to drainage and catchment area
stagnation. Water immobility creates breeding grounds for
malaria-transmission vectors, i.e., mosquitoes. The local government
moved proactively by providing free mosquito nets
and medicines that limit spread of the disease. Many inhabitants
have benefited from the project and continue to do so,
as reflected in a marked decrease in reported malaria cases.
