Sentinel Meeting with Departments and Units over Research Capacity Development Needs

Starting January 18, 2018 - Ending January 18, 2019

Faculty, staff and graduate students from within the University of Ghana system are invited to discuss and explore areas of research capacity development needs in your department. SENTINEL (Social and Environmental Trade-offs in African Agriculture) is a collaborative project funded by the Global Challenges Research Fund – RCUK Collective Fund (GCRF-RCUK) under the call “Growing Research Capability to Meet the Challenges Faced by Developing Countries”. It is led by Dr. Barbara Adolph of the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED), UK. The project comprises six UK Institutions and three African partners (Ethiopia, Ghana and Zambia) supported by the Regional Universities Forum Capacity Building in Agriculture (RUFORUM).

One of the three goals of SENTINEL is to enhance the research capacity of UK and African researchers and their organizations to investigate the impacts, risks and trade-offs relating to the socio-economic and environmental dimensions of different agricultural development pathways, particularly in light of projected regional changes in climate.

There is the need to interact, share ideas and devise strategies towards achieving this goal. Please join us for this discussion on 22nd January 2018. The meeting will be moderated by Ms. Adrienne Martin of the Natural Resources Institute, Greenwich University, UK.

Venue: Smart Classroom,

School of Continuing and Distance Education

Time: 10:00 am

We count on your cooperation.

Yours sincerely,

Dora Neina (PhD).
