Ghana, an agricultural exception in West Africa?
The Grain de Sel magazine produced by Inter-Réseaux développement rural is dedicated to Ghana’s experiences related to agricultural development. What can neighbouring countries learn from Ghana’s success story? Ghana’s agricultural sector is mainly driven by exports crops, notably cocoa, and a liberal government policy which proactively supports the private sector. Moreover, Ghana successfully cut both the proportion of people who suffer from hunger and the absolute number of undernourished people in half. However, it faces new challenges because of increasing inequality, low agricultural productivity and the degradation of natural resources. The magazine includes a series of thematic articles produced by members of Inter-Réseaux to explore lessons learned from various sectors and stakeholders.
