Nigeria to Partner With Cameroon On Environmental Data

Nigeria is to partner with Cameroon to establish framework for exchange of hydro-meteorological and environmental data to prevent flooding, a statement by Mrs Modupe Ogundoro of the Federal Ministry of Water Resources said.

She said the agreement was reached after the Technical Committee on the issue of Lagdo dam visited Cameroon in December, 2012. It said the two countries acknowledged the importance of building more hydraulic structures on the tributaries of Benue River. It said that both countries agreed that cooperation in the area of water resources should take into account the Niger Basin Authority Water Charter.

However, to facilitate the process of realising the Shared Vision process of the Niger Basin Authority, it suggested that the two countries should sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).
