Researchers challenged on climate change

10 December 2013, 20:16

Lagos  - Researchers in the country have been urged to seek ways of mitigating the effects of climate change in the country.

The Vice-Chancellor of the Federal University of Agriculture in Abeokuta ( FUNAAB) in Ogun State, Prof. Olusola Oyewole presented the challenge at a workshop on Climate Change and Integrated Water Resources Management in Abeokuta, Ogun State.

The workshop was organised by the National Water Resources Capacity Building Network in partnership with the National Water Resources Institute, Kaduna and the Federal University of Agriculture in Abeokuta.

Oyewole stressed the need for an integrated approach to climate change effects and water resource management through education, training, research and information dissemination, to transform the nation’s economy.

The Dean, Postgraduate School, Prof. Ololade Enikuomehin, represented the Vice Chancellor, who is also the President, Association of African Universities, on the occasion.

Oyewole noted that FUNAAB was passionate about the development of agriculture and would, therefore, ensure that the impact of research findings in the university got to the common man.

He added that this passion contributed to the institution’s chances of winning the World Bank’s Centre for Excellence award in agriculture.

Adewumi said the centre was committed to promoting effective partnership in education, training, research and information dissemination on water resources development and management.
