|Mr. Ishmael Lente|
Mr. Ishmael Lente, an ASSAR PhD Candidate at the Institute for Environment and Sanitation Studies (IESS) has successfully passed his PhD viva defence on Tuesday September 18, 2018.
Ishmael’s research, ‘Vulnerabilityand Adaptation Options to Agro-ecosystems and Climate Change in Semi-arid Ghana’ examined the availability, changes in supply, utilization and the quality of key agro-ecosystem and ecosystem services that support smallholder farmers in within the Nandom District of the Upper West Region of Ghana.
Ishmael is expected to submit his final thesis (after addressing all corrections) in the next three weeks ahead of the November Graduation Ceremony, thus making him the first ASSAR PhD graduate.
