Dr Katharine Vincent and Tracy Cull will shortly be leaving for Accra, Ghana, where they will be acting as mentors at the UNU-UNISDR-SEI Anglophone African Writeshop.  The event, which aims to assist African early career scholars, practitioners and policy-makers to produce a paper of sufficient quality for submission to a peer-review journal, will be attended by 25 participants selected from an applicant pool of over 70.  Themes of the writeshop are climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction.
