Policy highlights:

  • Ghanaian smallholders’ initiatives are the driving force behind much of Ghana’s agricultural growth, which is made possible by policy that produces a favourable climate for investment and public goods.
  • Agricultural development in Ghana has been continuous and consistent thanks to Ghana’s political stability, regional collaboration and a steady flow of donor funding.
  • There is high potential for improved yields by making better use of farm inputs. Input market failures must be reduced without relying on costly input subsidies.
  • Deliberate policies are needed to combat regional disparities. Redistribution of income and making use of agricultural opportunities that have so far remained untapped, such as cotton production, will help areas that are lagging behind.
