The EPA Regional Director said this during a day’s informative session on climate change with major stakeholders to enhance awareness, discuss mitigation strategies as part of a national adaptation plan to address the effects to climate change.

Climate change concerns were no longer the problem of the Western Countries but an alarming global catastrophe that needed well targeted interventions to save planet earth.
