RCE Kano, in collaboration with Zamfara Environmental Network (ZEN) and the Centre for Renewable Energy and Action on Climate Change organised a one-day conference with a view to proposing solutions for the environmental and security challenges affecting northern Nigeria.

In recent years, northern Nigeria (especially parts of the North West and North East) has witnessed numerous chaos and conflicts between herders and farmers due to environmental degradation. On the occasion of World Environment Day 2018, this conference invited stakeholders to discuss solutions to the conflicts, including the need for security agencies to play more of a pivotal role to protect northern Nigeria’s small forests and its wildlife.
