Nigeria: climate and environmental political economy analysis

This political economy analysis looked at the drivers of policy and factors affecting implementation around climate and environment issues in Nigeria. It focused on forest management, afforestation and deforestation. It looked at the institutional dynamics of policy formulation and performance in the Federal Ministry of Environment and its agencies, as well as at the relations with international donors and with the sub-national level. TPP's Olly Owen and Sa'eed Husaini identified new domestic drivers of conservation, and highlighted the need for donors in the environmental field to learn more from the lessons of governance and public sector reform programmes.

It was commissioned by The Policy Development Facility Phase II, a flexible, rapid-response facility set up to support ‘champions of change’, to implement economic and social policies that lead to poverty reduction in Nigeria.
