With the huge gap of knowledge on how people relate with nature and inadequate information on climate change, the French Institute for Research in Africa (IFRA) is set to organise a “Post COP21” conference that is tagged “Ecological Crisis: Local and Global Perspectives“.

The conference will set out to explain how the myth on the disappearance of Lake Chad has gained credence against all scientific evidence.

In a release that was signed by the Attaché for Cooperation and Cultural Affairs of Embassy of France, Aurélien Sennacherib said that the lake has been emblematic of the Sahel crisis and of the effects of global warming.

“Its case is frequently brought up at international conferences on environment and climate, during the recent COP 21 in Paris with devastating consequences that is widely broadcast. It is sometimes said to be one of the causes of the Boko Haram violence.”

He further said that the conference will also analyses the strategies of the main stakeholders involved in order to show that the drying-up theory is being made use of for two reasons which is to legitimize a project of water transfer from the Congo basin, and to draw off international funding to counter the effects of global warming.

The lecture will be given by Prof. Géraud Magrin of Pantheon Sorbonne University in Paris and invited guests are expected to sit by 6:00pm on Tuesday, 12th July at the Bogobiri House, 9 Maitama Sule Street, off Awolowo, Ikoyi, Lagos.
