Sokoto — British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Mr Bob Dewar, yesterday challenged religious leaders and faith-based organisations in the country to raise awareness on the impact of climate change by ensuring that the environment is protected.

He also said scientists have estimated that climate change will cause catastrophic changes over the next 100 years while crop yields in Africa will decline by 50 percent by the year 2020, if no concrete action is taken to tackle the scourge.
