To become a professor of Environmental Management and GIS and pursue a Development career with any Non governmental Organisation that will take me to positions of leadership in Environmental sustainability in Nigeria within Ten years.
Using the skill and knowledge gained as a GIS specialist and Environmental manager, I will come up with a project tagged ‘Strengthening community-based adaptation to climate change in Nigeria’.
The aim of the project will be to promote climate change adaptation.
This project will be implemented using social analysis tools to conduct a participatory needs assessment in order to facilitate the identification of adaptation option
The goals of the project will include:
1. Enhance the awareness of Climate change impacts
2. To increase food security and reduce dependency on wild fisheries and mangroves
3. To reduce dependency on fuel wood for domestic use
4. To improve access to water
5. To reduce dependency on and conserve declining local forest resources
6. To reduce urban flood through integrated urban flood management
