During a courtesy visit to LEADERSHIP’s headquarters in Abuja, the project director from the Energy Commission of Nigeria (ECN), Samaila Gambo Zaku emphasised the critical role of the media in disseminating vital information to the public.

Zaku elaborated on the NSCP project, “Scaling Up Energy-Efficient and Climate-Friendly Cooling in Nigeria’s NDC Revision,” which aims to accelerate the transition to energy-efficient air conditioners with climate-friendly refrigerants in various buildings. With funding from the Clean Cooling Collaborative (CCC) and technical assistance from the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), this initiative seeks to mitigate the effects of climate change through sustainable cooling technologies.
