Data  and Barnabas Apom (Akvo Training Consultant) conducted a training for the staff of Green Advocacy in Ghana on how to use Akvo Flow to effectively gather and share their project data.

Green Advocacy Ghana (GreenAd), an organization that aims at upholding and enhancing the sustainability and integrity of Ghana’s environment through partnerships in research, development of environmental databases, capacity building , dissemination of environmental information, promotion and enforcement of environment laws and regulations needed to gather field data on a project.
