Student Research on Accra

Creating learning and research opportunities for graduate students both at Columbia University and at our partner university in Accra, the University of Ghana-Legon, was an important objective during the early stages of the Accra program.  Masters’ degree students in the disciplines of engineering, urban planning, public health, geography and policy drafted background papers focused on specific urban challenges facing the city.  Some of these papers surveyed particular sectors (e.g., healthcare), based on secondary data, while others concentrated on one of MCI’s focus neighborhoods, using field data obtained during Accra-based internships. Direct downloads for the reports are available below.
