Nigerian Sustainable Finance Roadmap

The high-carbon, resource-intensive growth path of the last few hundred years has severely damaged both the planet and the people who live on it. Pollution, natural resource depletion and climate change are also creating significant social and economic stresses that have historically not been accounted for, or properly addressed, in development plans. Growing empirical and anecdotal evidence signals that the development trajectory of Nigeria’s economy will need to change dramatically in the coming years. The ability to deliver on key national policy objectives, diversify the economy away from its heavy reliance on natural resources, increase food security, provide jobs for a rapidly growing population, and fill a substantial infrastructure gap – these goals call for a new economic direction.

This report lays out the ways in which Nigeria can unlock the investment needed to move onto a more sustainable growth trajectory that will benefit its people, its environment and the economy.
