Biografie

Isaac G. K. Ansah is a PhD candidate at AEP (WASS),  which was commenced on 17th November, 2016. Prior to this, he had obtained his bachelor degree in Agricultural Economics from Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (Kumasi, Ghana). He also earned a master degree in Management, Economics and Consumer Studies, with specialization in Economics, Environment and Policy with AEP chair group at Wageningen University.

His PhD topic is “Modelling the social-ecological resilience of the Ghanaian food system”. Under the supervision of   dr. ir. Koos Gardebroek and dr. Rico Ihle, Isaac hopes to operationalize social-ecological resilience in relation to food systems and quantitatively measure various elements of resilience. He will then apply both micro- and macro-econometric techniques to analyze the factors that influence food system resilience at both micro and macro scales.

Projecten

The degree of resilience of food systems determines how well they can withstand or adapt to shocks. This project aims at operationalizing resilience in the context of the Ghanaian food system. This is achieved by combining socioeconomic indicators derived from the literature and applying quantitative methods to measure food system resilience, using nationally representative household panel and cross-sectional data. Econometric and structural equation modelling are used to analyse factors that influence food system resilience, with specific focus on markets and infrastructure. We expect to identify reliable indicators and key drivers of food system resilience that could help to inform policies and actions intended at managing food systems.
