Oscar Asiedu Kuffour's Testimonial
BA (Honours), Geography and Resource Development, University of Ghana
"From my undergraduate study at the University of Ghana, I have been interested in the constraints of human activities in space. I have been more concerned about how disasters continue to add to the already uncountable problems of humankind. Though disasters sometimes happen unexpectedly, their impacts on humankind largely depend on how well they are managed. My research interests focus on the effects of decentralization on disaster management in Ghana. I intend to study the often conflicting and complementing role of the central government and decentralized bodies towards disasters in Ghana and its challenges on disaster management. I find the MA program at Brock University invaluable in helping me achieve this objective."
