The workshop was participated by Lovans Owusu-Takyi, the Director of ISEES and Ridwan Salia an environmental advocacy officer at ISEES.
The workshop afforded the participants an understanding of the World Bank’s Country Framework Partnerships and thematic areas of CSO engagements as well as advocacy points on which CSOs can engage effectively with government and development partners to enhance sustainable development in Ghana.
