Data Sharing: NiMet Collaborates With India MDepartment



The Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NiMet) is set to commence bilateral cooperation with the India Meteorological Department (IMD) on meteorological information and data  sharing for improved service delivery.

This disclosure was made by the DG/CEO NiMet, Prof Sani Abubakar Mashi, after a meeting with the management of the  India Meteorological Department on South–South Interagency  Cooperation over the weekend,  while on a visit to India.

Part of the statement signed by the spokesperson of the agency, Muntari Ibrahim,  quoted Prof Mashi as saying  that  “NiMet has so much to benefit from the Indians, especially in the areas of Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP), Sensor Design, Satellite Meteorology and Research”.

He stated further that NiMet is “to submit a formal request and  a draft Memorandum of Understanding (MoU)” to the India  Meteorological Department on the cooperation.

It will be recalled that Prof Mashi has reiterated his firm conviction that collaboration of NiMet with other such agencies and organisations will improve upon the service delivery of the  agency.

The India Meteorological Department, established 143 years ago, is the national meteorological service of the country and the principal government agency in all matters relating to  meteorology, seismology and other allied subjects.

Once established, this bilateral cooperation will be of mutual benefit to both countries.
