Kwame Nkrumah University Of Science And Technology (KNUST), Ghana:
KNUST is a higher institution of learning with over 20 thousand students and over 700 teaching faculty. It is organized into six colleges including agriculture, science, engineering, and health. Members from these colleges have been involved in research into renewable natural resources, environmental sanitation, urban agricultural issues, environmental and health risks associated with urban agriculture and sanitation, mining, deforestation, housing, etc. and actively involved in Technology Transfer. We work with several CGIAR centers and Donor Agencies (e.g., DFID, DANIDA, IFAD) through individual but highly coordinated research and teaching staff activities.
Main role in the project
The multidisciplinary criteria for evaluation and classification of peri-urban and rural settlements with no access to improved sanitation (task 1.1) and the task 7.2 (Formation of research clusters) were under the responsibility of KNUST, . They also played a key role in the dissemination programme, especially to the end users and capacity building of authorities. They were responsible for the organization of 3 Workshops in West Africa (Capacity Building Workshop, Rural Workshop and Day Workshop), and they published, with the help of TUHH, at least one article regarding EG1 (Low cost sanitation technologies).
