The Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NiMet) and Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University (COOU) have announced plans to collaborate on climate action initiatives, which include establishing an experimental farm and weather station.

During a meeting in Abuja, the director-general of NiMet, Prof. Charles Anosike and the acting vice- chancellor of COOU, Prof. Kate Omenugha discussed potential partnership opportunities. This collaboration may involve providing climate and weather information to local communities around the university and exploring options for dual certifications between the two institutions, RTC Oshodi and MBMIST Katsina.

Omenugha presented the university’s upcoming Tree Planting and Climate Action Summit scheduled for July 17, 2024 and expressed gratitude to Anosike for his support. She explained that the university was inspired to launch a tree-planting campaign after experiencing significant damage from a windstorm, prompting them to focus on climate-smart strategies for future mitigation. Prof. Omenugha also shared the university’s five-year roadmap on climate action, emphasising the “One staff, one tree; one student, one tree” initiative.

The partnership aims to explore innovative approaches to climate action and create a platform for knowledge sharing and collaboration between NiMet and COOU. This cooperation signifies a mutual commitment to address climate change challenges and promote sustainable practices within the university’s environment and surrounding communities.
