The programme's overall aim is to catalyse increased quantity and quality of public and private investment in agriculture. This will help secure, improve and sustain the productivity, resilience and wellbeing of smallholder farmers, their households and communities in Ghana.
We work to consolidating and enhancing the impact of government and donor commitments in support of smallholder agriculture in Ghana and beyond, through:
- Influencing for increased investment in agriculture that benefits poor farmers.
- Tracking agriculture budgets, and convening platforms for policy influencing and good agriculture governance.
- Building local, national, regional and global alliances to promote investments in agriculture targeting women and other smallholder farmers.
The programme continues to build on the success of project work at community level and has led to the development of two new initiatives: 'System Innovation on Women Economic Empowerment (SIWEE)' and 'Protecting Fisheries Livelihood's'.
