Rosina Amoah Agyapong

MES Candidate


I am currently a graduate student in the School of Environment, Enterprise and Development (SEED) at the University of Waterloo. I completed my undergraduate studies in BSc. Development Studies at Valley View University, Accra-Ghana, which gave me an in-depth knowledge of development problems affecting third world countries ranging from social, economic, political, environmental, cultural and technological issues.

My research interest is focussed on the impacts of climate change in small-scale fishery communities in Africa. My current MES research explores fishing communities’ perspective on building local resilience to climate change vulnerability by critically examining the achievement of viability in small-scale fishery communities of Lake Volta, Ghana. The research is part of the Vulnerability to Viability (V2V) project undertaken by the Environmental Change and Governance Group (ECGG). My supervisor is Professor Prateep Kumar Nayak.
