ADVOCATING FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A NATIONAL GOVERNANCE FRAMEWORK FOR MAINSTREAMING CLIMATE CHANGE POLICY IN NIGERIA
Apr 2015 - On Going
																		The current debate on climate change has continued to raise significant doubts on the willingness as well as sincerity of governments’ the world over to effectively address the global challenges of a rapidly   warming   planet.   Also,   the   institutional   conflict   between   promoting   economic development and protecting the natural environment is one that continues to dominate the public policy arena with seemingly no end in sight; especially within the existing global economic recession. Indeed, it may therefore be argued that what is required is a global response to the challenges  thrown  up  by  climate  change  within  a  localized  framework  of  action  i.e.  Think globally and act locally and vice versa. Then again, the debate on climate change has not always been a straight forward one. In spite of mounting evidence to the contrary, opposition still exists within the scientific society on the direct cause of global warming. Perhaps such controversy is not unrelated to the significant influence of multi-national oil companies on research funding; or the seeming reluctance of certain developed nations to put forward a binding agreement on emission reduction. However while politics and economic considerations hold sway on the international scene, the impacts of climate change have become a living reality in developing and Least Developed Countries (LDC) e.g. Bangladesh, Nigeria and the Maldives.

																		A Study Group made up of 20 members was set up as far back as 2002 to Review of the Nigerian Tax System was set up. By 2003, the Study Group came up with 275 recommendations, 127 amendments to the existing tax laws and 3 constitutional amendments. An Implementation programme time-table spanning July 2003 to January 2005 was also recommended. In the last quarter of 2004, the Federal Executive Council received and considered the Reports of the Study Group and the Working Group set up to review it. In the last quarter of 2005, the Federal Executive Council submitted 9 Tax Reform Bills to the National Assembly for consideration. As at this year, three of the Bills have become law, the Personal Income Tax was amended, a personalized tax \identification was introduced and  a national Tax Policy put in place but yet to receive legislative backing. The gains expected to be derived from the reform are short circuited as a result of lack of adequate political will from the ruling class and the people are yet to benefit meaningfully from the reforms process to set up a National Platform on Tax Justice in Nigeria

																		Cities are distinctive ensembles of human character, macro economic activities and government institutions and are thus, easily distinguished by the number as well as prevailing densities of socioeconomic, cultural activities that take precedence within them-Although the most visible characteristic of cities tend to readily focus, extensively on the existing form of their built environment. In most recent times, Nigerian cities have experienced glaring distortions in their growth patterns and their emerging urban structure.

																		This report demonstrates the use of a Remote Sensing System (RSS) to assess recent environmental changes in the Yangtze Delta, People’s Republic of China (PRC) before, during and after the construction of Shanghai International Airport over a twenty year period (1990-2010). The aim of this report is to develop a robust RSS for digital image analysis by evaluating methods of image interpretation for the study and analysis of habitat as well as coastline changes in the Yangtze Delta. 
This will be achieved through the acquisition of historical satellite imagery and data from different earth observation platforms (e.g. Earth Science Data Interface, Global Land Cover Facility, Google Earth and Global Visualization Viewer). This will form for the analytical framework for reviewing historic remotely sensed datasets to develop a digital image classification methodology that effectively detects and characterizes recent land cover changes in the Yangtze Delta (i.e. digital compilation of changes). 
Meanwhile, due consideration will be given to the need for conducting a habitat and coastline change analysis in the Yangtze Delta by citing select case studies of similar projects and alternative methods of land cover classification.  Accordingly, the report would further highlight the potential capability of image processing outputs of remotely sensed data. In addition, the report will evaluate the developed RSS through the revision of usability outputs, constraints and proffer recommendations for improvements.

																		In March, 2013, the National Commission for Nomadic Education in collaboration with UNICEF conducted a mapping study of selected nomadic schools in five GEP3 states of Katsina, Zamfara, Sokoto, Bauchi and Niger. The outcome of the study revealed the existence of multigrade arrangement in the majority of the nomadic schools, with teachers lacking the capacity to function effectively in multi-grade classroom. The training manual is designed for trainers of normadic school teachers to promote active and collaborative learning. It shifts the conventional paradigm of instruction delivery in nomadic school and introduces a vision for a new type of school that is both high quality and cost-effective.

Apr 2015 - On Going
																		The aim of this document is to review the risks posed by climate change in order to put forward a robust governance framework that sets ambitious and legally binding emission reduction targets.  Thus, this realization provided the intervention rationale to recommend embedding sustainable development considerations within a Holistic Governance Framework (HGF).
Furthermore, within the context of achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) the policy document also offers a multi-disciplinary review of the impact of unchecked Climate Change on the socio-economic development of Nigeria. The proposed policy document also appraises current scientific, technological, economic and social data on the prevailing policy intervention gaps in Nigeria’s CCGR. For this reason, particular emphasis is being placed on propagating a shift to and adoption of low GHG emission reduction strategies. In other words, this document offers an innovative approach to transiting to a low based economy by managing and proactively responding to Climate Change Challenges (CCC) in Nigeria

Finally, the policy document addresses notable funding restrictions on identified and proposed Climate Change Adaptation Mitigation (CCAM) policies in an attempt to effectively integrate sustainability into proposed governance strategies. Additional focus is being placed on a variety of policy options as well as technological innovation and transfer by effectively engaging the private sector to sustain priority action on Climate Change Adaptation Delivery (CCAD). Therefore,  the  document  lays  out  a  sound  policy  framework  that  identifies  and  assists  in financing notable adaptation measures (i.e. policy responses) to tackle the increasing challenges of Dangerous Climate Change (DCC) in Nigeria.

																		The goal of this project is adoption of policy framework and action plan for stakeholder coordination and management of IDPs in Nigeria. This is because  Internally displaced persons (IDPs) are typically persons or groups of persons who have been forced or obliged to flee or to leave their homes or places of habitual residence, in particular as a result of or in order to avoid the effects of armed conflict, situations of generalized violence, violations of human rights or natural or human-made disasters, and who have not crossed an internationally recognized State border. They differ from refugees only in the sense that they remain within the boundaries of their country of origin. This distinction unfortunately reduces the attention that is typically given to their plight especially in developing regions of the world like in Nigeria.

																		This report presents a comparative assessment of the 2005 Buncefield depot explosion, Hermel, Hempstead, United Kingdom and the 2011 Warri Refinery Petrochemical Company (WRPC), Warri, Delta State Nigeria. The outcome of which, revealed basic similarities in the strategic importance of each oil installation depot when contrasting the medium and long term disaster impacts of each case study. In this regard, notable differences were also identified in the adoption of respective disaster management responses as well as the resultant impacts on the Post Disaster Environment (PDE).
Furthermore, this report offers additional Disaster Mitigation Measures (DMM) as well as preparedness strategies for adoption by both public and private organizations in the likelihood of a reoccurrence of a Buncefield-like disaster. This was achieved through the careful consideration of numerous investigative reports, academic research articles and relevant case studies. Also, a closer look at the different dimensions of Disaster Impact Vulnerability (DIV) highlighted a significant difference in the extent of Post Disaster Recovery (PDR) achieved in Least Developed Countries (LDC) and More Economically Developed Countries (MEDC).
Finally, additional information and supporting material were included to justify the selection of respective Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) strategies to provide an effective response to specified oil related incidents.

Enviironmental Law Case Study
Apr 2015 - On Going
																		Environmental law remains a vast professional discipline, which is as diverse as the arising magnitude of environmental challenges present in the 21st century. The important role which the environment plays cannot be over emphasized because its influence percolates into every dimension and aspect of human existence.  Thus, there is an obvious need to effectively regulate its use and allocation while establishing limits of acceptable development. This must be done to effectively protect the collective rights of individuals and businesses alike. In this regard, government must take the leading role by promoting proactive legislation, strengthening regulatory institutions and most importantly enforce the law.  Some may argue that environmental laws must be central to policy making on the International stage to bring about a significant impact. Let me therefore sound a note of caution, because while the environment may be central to all aspects of life, other considerations do tend to reflect certain realities e.g. a case in point may be the ‘Kyoto Protocol’. This case study shall examine the planning dimensions of environmental law focused on the approval of planning permits for environmental impact assessment (EIA) developments in the Ardagh Glass Limited V Chester City Council case. This shall be done by outlining specific timelines through a brief on the case history and critically review the court ruling

Apr 2015 - On Going
																		Sections 17 of the C.P.A., 129 of the C.P.C., and 27 of the Police Act authorize the grant of bail by the police pending the trial of the accused person except in respect of capital offences. Where bail is refused, the accused person must be charged to court within 48 hours. Bail is an important component of the right to personal liberty under Section 35 of the Constitution. Therefore, bail is a right. The legal basis for the right to bail is the presumption of innocence of the accused or suspect. Presumption of innocence is provided in section 36(5) of the Constitution as one of the constitutional safeguards for fair hearing. 

However, a person may be denied of his right to personal liberty as provided in section 35(1) (c) for the purpose of bringing him before a court in execution of the order of a court, upon reasonable suspicion of his having committed a criminal offence, and in order to prevent his committing a criminal offence. Section 35(4) however demands that any person denied of his personal liberty in this regard shall be brought before a court of law within a reasonable time otherwise the person should be released on bail. Reasonable time is further defined in section 35(5) as 24 hours (a day) in the case of an arrest or detention in any place where there is a court of competent jurisdiction within a radius of 40kms; and in any other case, 48 hours (two days) or any longer period, which given the circumstances of the case, the court considers reasonable.

Despite all these provisions, incessant detention of suspects without trial and other innocent people for the sole purpose of extortion has been on the increase and indeed has become commonplace in Nigeria. Onerous bail conditions are being imposed on suspects who have applied for bail. Reliable sureties are also being rejected on frivolous grounds. This amounts to a form of corruption and also affects the level of the police service delivery to the public.

																		The SOTU report on Nigeria 2010 underlines the lack of progress towards popularization, ratification and implementation of AU protocols, policy standards and frameworks in Nigeria. One of the biggest challenges is the failure of domestication of the AU legal instruments. Section 12(1) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria stipulates that no treaty between the Federation and any other country shall have the force of law except to the extent to which any such treaty has been enacted into law by the National Assembly. The non-ratification and domestication of some of these treaties have left Nigeria not playing its required and exemplary role in the comity of African nations. Although Nigeria has signed and ratified the Protocol on the African Charter on Human and People’s Rights and the Rights of Women in Africa in February 2005 and also has a national gender policy no specific national legislation to ensure the observance of the rights of women has been implemented.

																		ABSTRACT
This research study sets out a methodological approach to assessing the climate change vulnerability and adaptation needs of urban areas in Abuja; and thereby identifies spatial planning priorities for addressing climate-related risks. For this purpose, a Climate Change Risk and Vulnerability Assessment Tool was developed to evaluate the use of spatial mapping techniques i.e. Scenario Simulation, Indicator-Based Classification and Spatial Multi-Criteria Analysis in developing a conceptual framework for integrating adaptation action into the urban planning of Abuja. This forms an integral part of long term strategic planning to promote the sustainable development of cities.
By incorporating the use spatial mapping approaches into the conceptual framework of the Climate Change Risk and Vulnerability Assessment Tool, the researcher identified priority adaptation action areas and responses to enhance urban sustainability in Abuja i.e. through a review of current climate-related risks to evaluate the extent of Climate Change impacts. The research study also suggests that the Climate Change Risk-Vulnerability Assessment Tool can be replicated, through the refinement of selected vulnerability indicators to reflect prevailing climate-related risks; through the operation of spatial analytical procedures to highlight the potential impacts of simulated Climate Change vulnerability and impact scenarios across different geographical scales.
This conceptual approach enhances the ease of use, functionality and multi-tasking operations of the Climate Change Risk and Vulnerability Assessment Tool. However, the choice of spatial analytical processes or methods may vary to reflex the required scope and nature of vulnerability study to be conducted. Finally, the research study provides considerable insight into the nature, spatial distribution, adaptation responses and impacts of climate change in urban areas of Abuja.

Apr 2015 - On Going
																		The urban morphology of modern cities continues to pose significant difficulties for urban planners and environmentalist alike. This is because the dynamic and often complex nature of spatial interactions in urban areas often betrays a false sense of calm with attendant public health consequences. The reality of which is a far cry from the serene environment of the country side or the simple comforts of an afternoon stroll along a landscaped boulevard. Sadly, cities do not evoke such thoughts as their often impressive cityscape comes along with a hefty environmental price tag. At the turn of the 21st century, major cities all over the world have become increasingly susceptible to extreme events e.g. prevailing droughts conditions across the United Kingdom, heat waves in Europe and the United States, bush fires in Australia or flash floods in Lagos, Nigeria. Either way this emerging scenario points to an increased vulnerability to the impacts of climate change across the globe. There is therefore a cogent need to address the existing vulnerability of urban areas in order to better equip cities to effectively mitigate the impacts of climate change (Gill, S.E. et al 2007).

Apr 2015 - On Going
																		This Environmental Improvement Strategy (EIS) document establishes a coherent framework for continual improvement of the overall environmental performance of Konoha Glasswork Limited (KGL) over a five year period from 2012 to 2017. This strategy document links improved economic performance to identified environmental improvements through the implementation of Cost Saving Measures (CSM) and Waste Minimization Strategies (WMS) in the manufacturing process. The document articulates a concise systematic approach to achieving ISO14001 certification through a series of Environmental Improvement Implementation Plans (EIIP) for the period aforementioned. 

The Environmental Improvement Implementation Plan (EIIP) sets out annual priority action areas within an environmental improvement context and demonstrates specific compliance targets as a basis for the environmental improvement strategy.  This strategy document carefully presents key environmental improvement priorities by analyzing the manufacturing process, and identifying potential areas for improvement to enhance environmental performance. 

The Formulation of this strategy underscores KGL’s commitment to improving its business environment and promoting efficient manufacturing operations; while maintaining its trademark quality products and services to our clients. Given the above therefore,  it is imperative to mention that as a general management policy, KGL’s environmental improvement strategy not only considers potential improvements and investment opportunities but also makes rational reductions through promoting general efficiency i.e. adoption of Cost Saving Measures (CSM), Best Available Technology (BAT) and Best Practicable Environmental Option (BPEO) where applicable.

																		The Global Adult Tobacco Survey (GATS) therefore constitutes an essential component of a proposed comprehensive tobacco control program, as it is regarded as a global standard for the efficient and systematic monitoring of the tobacco epidemic through the tracking of tobacco control indicators. The Nigerian GATS was conducted in 2012 as a pilot project in Africa designed primarily to produce an internationally comparative data framework to study and monitor adult tobacco use in Nigeria. It is expected that the data outputs from the completed GATS will serve as a primary source of reliable and quality data for the generation of effective tobacco control policies in line with the provisions of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) Article 13 as well as incorporating components of the Tobacco Free Initiative (TFI). The survey was implemented by the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) under the coordination of the Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH) in collaboration with partners such as the WHO, the United States of America Centre for Disease Control (CDC), CDC Foundation and with support from the Campaign for Tobacco Free Children (CTFK).

																		This report demonstrates the need for and use of an Environmental Audit for improving the
legislative compliance and environmental performance of Acme Metal Treatment Company. The
aim of this report is to outline a procedure for preparing, conducting and reporting the findings of
an environmental audit. The report also describes the basic requirements placed on an
environmental auditor, with particular reference to implementing ISO14001.
This was achieved by identifying areas of Acme’s manufacturing operation that currently lead to
non-compliance, future liability, waste of raw materials, release of pollutants, unnecessary
expenditure and poor environmental performance (i.e. Input – Output Analysis, SWOT Analysis
PEST, Product Analysis and Environmental Risk Assessment). This analytical framework
formed the structure for reviewing the operational efficiency and environmental performance of
Acme Metal Treatment Company. In addition, an important outcome of this report is the
formulation of an Environmental Action Plan that highlights key Compliance Action Points that
address identified non-compliance issues.
Furthermore, the report offers some insight into integrating management systems and planning
for continual improvements for Acme Metal Treatment Company. In addition, the report draws
from the use of relevant environmental audit case studies to properly articulate and introduce a
set of appropriate environmental and legal compliance guidelines. Finally, the report concludes
by recommending pertinent pollution prevention/ control and cost saving measures to mitigate
potential environmental risks of operational inefficiencies i.e. Compliance Action Points (CAP).

																		Over the years, cities have been shaped by the development of transport infrastructure, which exerts significant influence on the morphology and urban structure of human settlements. This has in turn contributed extensively to emerging trends of urban growth vis-à-vis existing road infrastructure. The influence of road infrastructure on commercial land uses goes beyond the need to improve accessibility but also contains basic elements of bid-rent and location gradient theories. As business firms look to expand their business frontiers and further derive advantages from the agglomeration of commercial activities.

Town Planning and Environmental Law - A False Dichotomy
Apr 2015 - On Going
																		While the field of Environmental Law has in recent years found huge followership and stimulated numerous public debates especially in the areas of oil spillage and climate change; town planning has seen a decline in prominence. To this end, it appears as if less attention is being paid to town planning issues. The emerging scenario has lead to a reliance on statutory instruments in the form of controls and regulations. Unfortunately, the current global economic climate has not contributed favourably to the static state of an already over legislated town planning system. In turn, the feverish discontent among economists and politicians alike prompted a swift change in their modus operandi. There seems to be a glaring insistence or in more subtle terms, a market choice preference to stimulate economic growth at all cost. Predictably, environmental concerns tend to take the back seat to economic growth. Eventually this unsustainable approach may well achieve some form of growth, but with far reaching environmental impacts.
