African Trade Center believes that a healthy environment drives tourism and foreign direct investment. Therefore environmental conservation and ecotourism can contribute effectively in resolving Nigeria’s unemployment problems and the attainment of millennium development goals (MDGs). These and many more informed the decision to convene the African Summit on Sustainable Environment.
African Trade Center also used the occasion to launch the Corporate Go Green Campaign and the Green City Project.
Corporate Go Green Campaign aims to encourage corporate institutions to commit to adopting environmentally healthy and sustainable processes while the Green City Project is designed to promote tree planting culture within the FCT and other cities in Nigeria.
Summit attracted the participation of relevant Stakeholders with Presentation of Awards to Institutions that have made tangible contributions towards adopting paper presentations on sustainable environment and climate resilient agriculture.
