The four-year UNTFHS-funded project entitled “Enhancing human security through developing local capacity for holistic community-based conflict prevention in Northern Ghana”, has been jointly implemented by six UN agencies, namely UNDP, UNICEF, WFP, FAO, UNIDO and UNU-INRA.

It will feature programme stakeholders (including UN agencies, beneficiaries, local and national institutions), keynote speakers, researchers, practitioners and policy makers from across the continent and from other parts of the world. For further information please contact: unuinra.hspgh@gmail.com or inra@unu.edu
