CLIMATE CHANGE MITIGATION A GAME CHANGER FOR COMBATING DESERTIFICATION IN NORTHERN NIGERIA

Ahmad Yahaya Abdul, David Martin @ Daud Juanil.

Abstract
The United Nations Ecological Programme claims that 10 to 20% of the world’s arid-lands are already degraded (UNEP, 2016). Africa is impacted most with 73% of its agricultural arid-lands being degraded. Nigeria is not left out on the said crises as desertification and climate change hits the northern part of the country the most. This study is an extension of the doctoral research by (Abdul, 2020) and review of theories and various models in the area of desertification and sustainability to come up with an ideal solution for combating desertification in northern-Nigeria. Through a triangulation process, findings from the study clearly shows that tackling climate change will surely take care of all the adverse effects that desertification will cause as a result climate change mitigation would surely and automatically combat desertification in northern-Nigeria. Meaning mitigating climate change automatically desertification is taken care of. Thus, if the government would take action on climate change, it will certainly be a game-changer for combating desertification in northern Nigeria. The outcome could serve as a guide for policy makers in the government of northern Nigeria to promote policies that would combat desertification in essence fight climate change.

Key words: Climate Change, Game-Changer, Desertification, Mitigation, Northern-Nigeria.
