After our project meeting and doctoral colloquium, the DEMIS team attended the Sustainability Dialogue 2017 conference in order to present their work to the scientific community. We had many fruitful discussions. Our special thanks go to Dr. Dan Nukpezah the very well organized event.
The DEMIS team will meet from February 13-17, 2017 at the University of Ghana.
