Sustainable Africa Initiative
The primary objectives of the Sustainable Africa Alliance is to advance climate-risk related analytics, education, outreach, and capacity-building across several Nigerian industries that are significantly vulnerable to impacts from climate change. To ignite collaboration and innovation, The Sustainable Africa Initiative is currently launching The $10,000 Climate Risk Research Challenge.
The $10,000 USD
Climate Risk Research Challenge
The initiative aims to encourage collaboration, enhance awareness of the potential climate-related risks in Nigeria, and create an open-source platform offering FREE access to physical and transition risk data, cloud-based infrastructure resources, analytical tools, and the training needed to gain a better understanding climate-related risks and develop possible mitigation strategies.
To ignite collaboration and innovation, The Sustainable Africa Initiative is currently launching The $10,000 Climate Risk Research Challenge.The first of its king event in Nigeria, The $10,000 Climate Risk Research Challenge is open to a wide range of participants, including Nigerian Climate Scientists, University Students in Agriculture and Environmental Studies Programs, business owners, financial institutions, and NGOs.
