ANGOLAN METEROLOGY AGENCY NEEDS MORE WEATHER FORECASTERS FOR PROPER FUNCTIONING OF NEW AIRPORT

LUANDA, Angola’s National Institute of Meteorology and Geophysics (Inamet) will require a bigger pool of trained weather forecasters d to ensure the proper functioning of the new Luanda International Airport which is currently under construction, says Inamet Director-General Domingos Jose do Nascimento.

The number of weather forecast personnel which Inamet possesses at the moment is insufficient to ensure the full functioning of the two Luanda airports, he said here Thursday when announcing training plan for weather forecasters.

The training programme is being jointly conducted by Inamet and the Faculty of Science of State-run Agostinho Neto University (UAN) and is expected to produce graduates to help overcome the current shortage of the skilled personnel needed to meet the country’s needs.

Domingos Nascimento said the UAN graduates would be joined by others undergoing training overseas to enter the job market this year.

Weather forecast specialists have been trained in the country since 2014, under a partnership between Inamet and UAN’s Faculty of Science.
