Ghana Feed the Future Agriculture Policy Support Project
Agriculture is essential to Ghana’s economy. More than half of the Ghanaian labor force and one-fourth of the country’s entire gross domestic product depend on crops such as cocoa, maize, yams, and cassava. Ghanaian policymakers want to develop policies that will increase private-sector investment in agriculture, strengthening the sector overall and creating stable jobs, but they need relevant and reliable data to do so. The Ghana Feed the Future Agriculture Policy Support Project (APSP) worked with the government, civil society, private associations, and media to gather and use accurate evidence every step of the way — from policy research to implementation to advocacy.
