Project description
This research project questions how different types of knowledge (local, traditional, academic, indigenous, …) co-exist alongside each other or interact with one another. We focus on agricultural knowledge creation between migrant farmers and local farmers in the Brong Ahafo Region in Ghana, but also with governmental actors. Overall, possibilities for more inclusive agricultural development and innovations are explored.
