Vincent is a Ph.D. student at the Institute for Resources, Environment and Sustainability under the supervision of Dr. Jordi Honey-Roses and Professor Leila Harris. His broad research interest is in water management/governance, environmental sustainability, social-ecological systems, and WASH in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC). Specifically, his current research explores the different perspectives of residential water metering as a demand-side water management tool in the Greater Vancouver Water District (GVWD). He will investigate the social, economic, and political factors affecting the implementation of the policy in 21 municipalities in the GVWD.
Vincent previously studied Geography and Resources Development at the University of Ghana, Legon, and Environmental Policy at the Memorial University of Newfoundland, Canada, which enhanced his enthusiasm and research interest in environmental sustainability. In his master’s research, Vincent used the new-regionalism framework to explore the opportunities, potentials and also challenges in adopting a regional approach to manage water systems in rural Newfoundland.
Before joining EDGES, Vincent honed community engagement, project management, and development planning skills from the four years he worked as a planner in the Local Government Service in Ghana. I led various teams to implement projects including physical infrastructure development, water and sanitation and social initiatives sponsored by the government, UNICEF, UNDP, Plan-Ghana, and the World Bank.
