At a 21-day workshop in August 2016, the PAMBA project set the starting point for a dialogue on the basic principles of and the need for universally usable, barrier-free environments beginning at the Parliament House of Ghana. The central aim of the project is to provide guidance on creating barrier-free built environments for everyone including persons with disabilities to increase political participation.
AGGN fellows Alexander Marful and Paul Osei-Tutu are part of the project organising team. Further project partners are CLEAN AFRICA, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology-Ghana, Central University College - Ghana and Frankfurt University of Applied Science. After the opening workshop, the PAMBA initiative will go on for another 23 months to follow its aims.
