Francisca Aba Ansah
Ghana 2011
Francisca Aba Ansah is a born organizer who thrives on bringing people together to solve a problem. Currently, this young researcher cum entrepreneur is brainstorming with farmers in northern Ghana about how to build a better plastic bag—a chemical-free, insect-proof, environmentally sustainable, and affordable storage sack liner that will help prevent the postharvest losses that cut deep into smallholders’ meager profits.
Ansah explains. I am studying the effects of environmental factors such as temperature and relative humidity on the biodegradable material itself and on the quality of the food.
Field of Research
Enhancing rural livelihoods and food security through the use of environmentally friendly and sustainable methods of food storage and preservation.
