Moreover, the project seeks to incorporate climate adaption techniques into the curricula at KNUST, widen the teaching and research capacity of junior researchers and academic staff and modernize teaching materials to enhance resilience of teaching modes towards global challenges. In the sense of the funding programme, the objectives are aligned with United Nations SDG-related goals and actions.
