About EFI

WHY WE ARE HERE

The idea to establish Environmental Friendly Initiative (EFI) and eventual incorporation in 2011 as non-profit and non-governmental organization was nurtured at the 4th Annual Conference of Nigerian Senate on Environment in 2006. We started off with two key important approaches: Firstly to understand things as they are and why. Secondly, contribute to improving it. The intention is to reset the solution approach to environmental problems using the tools of research, education and advocacy.

Evidence show that it took hard work to convince the global community during the SDG negotiations to accept climate change as a stand-alone goal. Having become a crosscutting concern, fundamental in shaping economies and politics. The arrival of 2030 Agenda (Sustainable Development Goals particularly Goal 13) and Paris Agreement frameworks anchored on three strands of people, planet and prosperity has made our activities a lot easier. As a result, EFI activities in the last 3 years have focused on climate action solutions with increasing understanding that while adaptation should be emphasized in the south and mitigation north

WHO WE ARE

We are a diverse group of passionate individuals who have come together to solve problem. EFI activities since 3 years now have focused on climate change solutions. In 2016, we organized a Secondary School Competition titled “Climate Change an emerged reality in our biodiversity: the Role of the Nigerian Youth”. In 2017, we became part of African “Zero emission” coalition campaign engaging with African Development Bank on clean energy investment. In 2018, EFI was an official partner of “24 Hours of Reality” a global campaign lead by Climate Reality Project founded by Algore, former US Vice-president; together, we reached an incredible 800 million households on television in more than 180 countries, drawing about 42 million views online. In 2018, EFI became a member of the African coalition on ‘Zero Emission’ engaging with African Development Bank (AfDB).
