NGR in KNUST Organizes Workshop on Contribution of Non-Timber Forest Products to Sustainable Rural and Urban Livelihood

Next Generation Researchers (NGR) in KNUST organized a one-day workshop on Contribution of Non-Timber Forest Products (NTFPs) to Sustainable Rural and Urban Livelihood on Tuesday, 19th December, 2017 in Kumasi, Ghana. The purpose of the workshop was to present the activities of NGR to the university community including the writing of a Book Chapter on Rural-Urban Linkage for Sustainable Development, provision of Financial and Technical Support for MPhil SIRDA students, and more importantly presenting empirical research on contribution of NTFPs to sustainable rural and urban livelihoods. Specifically, the workshop, which was aimed at disseminating the findings of the empirical research to members of the university community and its environs for their inputs, brought together faculty members and postgraduate students (especially those of ESDA MPhil SIRDA programme) of the university as well as some industry players. Members of the NGR team received valuable comments especially in proposing a framework for developing a sustainable supply chain that will ensure the contribution of NTFPs to sustainable rural livelihood.
