Challenges in Agriculture
AGRA works with the Government of Ghana and various strategic partners to increase incentives for private sector participation and investment in the agricultural sector while enhancing access to finance and markets; the adoption of climate smart technologies and use of inputs (seeds and fertilizer).
In the first decade, AGRA built an asset base in technologies, partnerships and models which can be scaled for a significant impact on the status of inclusive agriculture in Ghana. Our strategy and support for Ghana from 2017 to 2021 seeks to bring all of these elements together and contribute to the National strategy, improving the incomes and food security for at least 1.2 million smallholder households through an investment of US$26 million in state capability support and policy engagement, as well as support to value chain development for maize, rice, soy and cassava, and market systems development.
