Kho, Mu-Jeong at an Overseas Fieldwork: Accra, Ghana (Africa) 




This fieldwork to Ghana (one of the fastest-growing urban areas in West Africa) aimed to strengthen a diagnosis and propose a set of strategies and involvement for making the mode of life and conditions for production, especially in (1) James Town called the Old Accra formed by the original settlers (2) the indigenous village of Gbawe as an area of experiencing the most rapid land-use change in Greater Accra.


Lots of times and efforts went into meetings with various authorities in local areas (the Ga District Assembly and Accra Metropolitan Assembly), Academics (from the University of Ghana), and researchers from local and international organizations 

This fieldtrip was considerably valuable experience as ‘economic analysis’ and ‘development consultant’, accumulating the ability to work with professionals from other disciplines, as well as a range of development stakeholders in the contexts of both developing and developed countries.
