CLIMATE CHANGE EDUCATION CURRICULUM FOR NIGERIA TERTIARY EDUCATION SYSTEM
The paper attempted to propose a Climate Change Education Curriculum that is conceived to provide a clear understanding of the Climate Change phenomenon for students in Tertiary institutions in Nigeria. Nobody is left in doubt of the relevance of climate change education in Nigeria tertiary education system. Tertiary educational institutions are expected to play a proactive role in proffering solutions to climate change challenges facing Nigeria. What needs to be done is to harness resources toward putting in place a well-articulated climate change education curriculum that should provide requisite information/knowledge and skills for future leaders. Thus, it is recommended that cogent policies need to be developed to ensure that climate change education is fully integrated into tertiary education system in Nigeria; that climate change education curriculum should be offered either as a standalone specialized course or integrated within other courses; and professional development support be provided to educators so as to be able to deliver effectively and also to be able to develop relevant teaching materials on climate change that could stand the test of time.
