Dr. Frank Kwaku Agyei is a scholar of environmental justice and rural wellbeing. He studies the social and political-economic causes of the precarity and suffering of natural-resource-dependent communities. He conducts his research in four inter-linked arenas: natural resource tenure and access; distribution along natural resource commodity chains; decentralization and democratic local government; and household vulnerability in the face of climate change. Dr. Agyei uses a political-economy approach drawing on disciplines of sociology, anthropology, political science, political philosophy and geography. He transmits the findings of his research through books, articles, a children’s book, film, policy briefs, sculptures, teaching and lectures. He has been privileged not only to review multiple development issues in developing countries but to have hands-on experience in designing, implementing and reviewing various development and poverty reduction approaches, impact investment and eco-entrepreneurship for over 12 years.
