The RECIRCULATE training sessions have really deepened my knowledge on the benefits of inter-disciplinary research and the immense potential for collaborative research on the African continent, as a researcher, I think knowledge exchange through collaborative research is the way forward in designing solutions for Africa’s challenges.
So far my capacity has been built on waste to energy in general, the policy basis of encouraging waste to energy as a waste management alternative. I have also been able to learn UK’s AD policies to enable me proffer solutions for Ghana in terms of waste to energy policies and incentives.
The RECIRCULATE Knowledge Exchange workshop showed me that we do not need to understand everything to make the first step. The sessions were very, very interactive. I have never been in a workshop like that!
