This workshop brings together key stakeholders active in Ghana’s entrepreneurship, innovation, technology and scientific research communities to explore opportunities to leverage indigenous forms and networks of R&D to drive expanded models of resilience in Coastal West Africa. Insights gained from this workshop are to be compiled and incorporated into ongoing development of an international framework for transatlantic design-led coastal resilience. The main objective of the workshop is to test the feasibility of building low-cost sensors for implementing Citizen’s Science projects. With a total of 32 participants, the workshop aims to demonstrate that low-cost sensors could be built by undergraduate students and used to collect reliable environmental data.
