Mohammed-Nurudeen is a creative and multi-skilled Award-Winning Development Journalist, Photographer/Videographer, Researcher, Policy Analyst, and Agric consultant, with experience that includes broadcast, online and print journalism, Climate Change, Health, Technology & Food Security, Agriculture, Agroecology, Economic Justice, Food Sovereignty, Housing, Political Ecology/Economy, and water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH).
I have been producing stories/features about hard-hitting social issues, from crime to business but I love telling compelling stories about amazing people, histories, and places through video, photography, and writing.
To keep my journalism skills top-notch, I work as a freelance writer/videographer/photographer for international media houses on science and general issues.
I cover Ghana and international stories, including serious crime, religion, politics, showbiz, and sports, and my work has been featured in AFP, Canada Broadcasting Cooperation, among others.
I have interviewed global figures like IUFRO’s Executive Director, Alexander Bucks, 𝐃𝐫 𝐑𝐢𝐜𝐡𝐚𝐫𝐝 𝐌𝐮𝐢𝐭𝐚, 𝐌𝐞𝐭𝐞𝐨𝐫𝐨𝐥𝐨𝐠𝐢𝐬𝐭, 𝐊𝐞𝐧𝐲𝐚 𝐌𝐞𝐭𝐞𝐨𝐫𝐨𝐥𝐨𝐠𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐥 𝐃𝐞𝐩𝐚𝐫𝐭𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭, 𝐂𝐥𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐍𝐮𝐥𝐥𝐢𝐬 𝐊𝐚𝐩𝐩, 𝐖𝐨𝐫𝐥𝐝 𝐌𝐞𝐭𝐞𝐨𝐫𝐨𝐥𝐨𝐠𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐥 𝐎𝐫𝐠𝐚𝐧𝐢𝐳𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧, Andy Raine, Head of International Law Unit at the Law Division of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), 𝐁𝐨𝐛 𝐖𝐚𝐫𝐝, 𝐏𝐨𝐥𝐢𝐜𝐲 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐂𝐨𝐦𝐦𝐮𝐧𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬 𝐃𝐢𝐫𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐨𝐫 𝐚𝐭 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐆𝐫𝐚𝐧𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐦 𝐑𝐞𝐬𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐜𝐡 𝐈𝐧𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐭𝐮𝐭𝐞 𝐨𝐧 𝐂𝐥𝐢𝐦𝐚𝐭𝐞 𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐧𝐠𝐞 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐄𝐧𝐯𝐢𝐫𝐨𝐧𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭 𝐚𝐭 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐋𝐨𝐧𝐝𝐨𝐧 𝐒𝐜𝐡𝐨𝐨𝐥 𝐨𝐟 𝐄𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐨𝐦𝐢𝐜𝐬 among others.
My written work on climate change, food security, health, Agric, sanitation, business issues, religion, and travel has been published in some major media houses.
I have received international fellowships and participated in media training and development leadership programs in Ghana and some parts of the world including India, Togo, Burkina Faso, Tanzania, Kenya, Niger.
I am also a busy Journalist, covering nature, news, and traveling to any place at any time for any compelling story.
I have delivered excellent media output through video, audio, and photography in rural communities across Ghana in very challenging times. I thrive in difficult and fatiguing conditions to tell compelling stories even if I have to spend more than I can afford.
Outside media production, you’ll find me, training farmers, providing solutions to pests and diseases, encouraging young Africans to take up farming as a business, traveling long distances, reading books, researching, posting funny things on social media, or networking.
I have certificates in HND General Agricultural Science, BSc. Agricultural and Biosystem Engineering and MPhil Meteorology and Climate Science.
I am also the Founder and Executive Director of Centre for Climate Change & Food Security (CCCFS).
Back to the journalism. I am most satisfied with a challenge if I have the opportunity to learn.
Sometimes, regardless of what you try on or whether you are fit, it is the things that made you better in the first place that change your life. I would like to think that this experience makes me a better journalist than I used to be.
