Duration : March 1, 2011 - December 31, 2013
(Extended to October 15, 2012)
Overview:

The Coordination and Change Project (V5), is formulated to orient, align and integrate the Volta Basin Development Challenge (VBDC) to contribute to poverty reduction and improved livelihood resilience in the Volta Basin. Project V5 will ensure coherence among the other four VBDC Projects, and manage their interdependences and research protocols in such a way as to allow smooth running of the program leading to quality research outputs. Moreover, V5 will engage policy makers and other stakeholders in the Basin creating opportunities for next and end users feedback that will enrich the research process in all VBDC projects and subsequently the uptake of research outputs. V5 will also generate recommendations for up- and out-scaling of interventions.
