Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are the main cause of anthropogenic climate change. To mitigate global warming, 175 countries signed the Paris Agreement in 2016, which aims to reduce GHG emissions and also to achieve net zero GHG emissions by the second half of this century. Furthermore, to formulate energy conservation and emission reduction policies, the monitoring and accurate estimation of GHG emission from countries, regions, and industries is necessary.

To understand the impact of greenhouse gases on climate change, and also to fill the scientific knowledge gap between greenhouse gases and climate change, we organize the Special Issue titled “Greenhouse Gases and Climate Change” in the journal Climate. Any papers that are related to greenhouse gases and climate change are warmly encouraged for submission to this issue. Research topics may include either observations and model simulations or the relationship between greenhouse gases and climate change.

Suggested topics for submission include: (1) The observation or modeling of GHG flux and concentration from different surfaces, including but not limited to cities, wetland, forest, and agriculture; (2) The technology and strategy to reduce GHG emissions or reach the goal of carbon neutrality; (3) The relationship between GHG emissions and climate change, especially the mitigation of climate change, and feedback between GHG flux and global warming (or precipitation, pressure, wind speed, and other climate parameters); (4) The facts and underlying mechanisms for climate change related to GHGs. Both original research papers and literature reviews are welcome for submission to this Special Issue

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Climate is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

This paper seeks to address Nigeria’s challenges in meeting its climate objectives by investigating feasible pathways that can be implemented to accelerate progress and ensure credibility in meeting these targets. By examining the current policies and practices in place as well as successful strategies employed by other countries, this paper aims to provide strategies and policy implications recommendations for Nigeria to enhance its climate action efforts. The potential scenarios developed in this study ranged from increasing renewable energy capacity to implementing stricter regulations and standards for industries to reduce their carbon footprint, promote sustainable production processes, and strengthen climate governance and policy frameworks. The authors further investigated these measures and discovered that implementing stricter regulations and standards for industries would reduce their carbon footprint, promote sustainable production processes, and strengthen climate governance and policy frameworks. As such, Nigeria will be able to meet its climate goals more quickly as a result of the following factors: preventing environmental degradation, funding environmentally friendly infrastructure, and improving public transportation systems that can reduce vehicle-related greenhouse gas emissions. The authors developed policy measures based on the proposed twelve credible pathways to catching up with climate goals in Nigeria, thereby promoting faster progress by the Nigerian government in achieving climate goals. By adopting these measures, Nigeria’s progress toward the proposed zero net by 2060 will be significantly accelerated. It will position Nigeria as a continental leader in sustainable development and contribute to the overall global efforts to mitigate climate change. This will not only benefit the environment but also lead to financial development and an improved standard of living for its citizens. Full article
