    Today, UNU-INRA received a visit from a delegation of the World Resources Forum (WRF), who traveled from Switzerland to start working on the planned WRF Conference 2020.

    It was revealed that Ghana has been selected as the first African country to host the World Economic Forum. The Ministry of Science Technology and Innovation (MESTI) will be the main host with the support of Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

    UNU-INRA was able to showcase some of the notable work we do on the continent and how we further hope to be of service to the African Continent.

    Dr. Gerald Forkuor, UNU-INRA Research Fellow, presented the work carried out by the institution over the years and some of the notable projects that we are undertaking, such as the research behind the Stranded Assets Report that was launched at the COP25 today.

    The WRF Conference is set to happen around June next year, to be confirmed. The WRF team were quick to express their readiness to have UNU-INRA on board as a partner.
