Gertrude Frimpomaa Domfeh Owusu, Stakeholder Co-ordinator

I have three years’ experience in managing climate change and development projects with funding from the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) and hosted by the Regional Institute for Population Studies, University of Ghana namely ‘DEltas, vulnerability and Climate Change: Migration and Adaptation’ (DECCMA) and the (Cities and Climate Change) Climate Smart Integrated Flood Management Projects. These are international projects focused on climate change, migration and adaptation in the Volta delta and flood risks management in Cities respectively. I therefore managed communications with the Consortium of participating institutions from India, Bangladesh and the UK team under DECCMA as well as among work packages within the Ghana team for both projects. The nature of my work makes it inevitable to collaborate with other team members within the country or outside towards the attainment of the project goals. Prior to this, I managed coalitions of individuals and organisations working on governance and climate change from a gender perspective as well as managed projects related to these fields for seven years. I currently work as the BRECcIA Ghana team’s Stakeholder Coordinator.
