GHANA conference, October 2009
UNU-ISP and UNU-INRA, in partnership with the University of Ghana, will organise a consultative conference & workshop on the role of African higher education in adapting to climate and ecosystems change. Issues discussed include the challenges to climate and ecosystems change, identify existing programmes and priority areas for capacity-building, and how to develop strong partnerships with African universities to expand postgraduate research on adaptation. This initiative is organised as part of the IR3S (Integrated Research Systems for Sustainability Science) programme on climate change and adaptation coordinated by the University of Tokyo, in close partnership with the Education for Sustainable Development Africa (ESDA) project coordinated by UNU.
