Bio I am the Executive Coordinator of Youth Path Organisation and a member of the UK Research & Innovation International Development Peer Review College. I am an early-stage researcher with a background in R4D, policy research, monitoring and evaluation. I have been involved in policy evaluation and research activities. Notable topics of my research include 'an analysis of how the cocoa sector takes climate change into account', 'the impact of climate change on cocoa production' and 'a systematic review of the cocoa production supply chain'. While working at UNESCO's Internal Oversight Service in Paris I provided valuable inputs to some of the sections of UNESCO’s policy evaluation on culture and sustainable development. I was selected by the International Council for Science to join the scientific and non-academic reviewers for the Leading Integrated Research for Agenda (LIRA) 2030 in Africa. In the sphere of urban governance and planning, I was a Programme Associate with the Urban Passenger Transport Unit at TMA in Ghana. Our mandate was to improve urban mobility and promote a shift to more environmentally sustainable transport modes & lower transport-related GHG emissions. I have experience in community-based project coordination in the sphere of youth civic engagement. My experience includes managing full-cycle donor-funded projects from proposal writing to monitoring and evaluation (M&E). The project areas include strengthening civil society participation in policy-making, promoting youth innovation and youth advocacy.
