There is urgent need to transform food systems so that they restore the ecosystem, provide healthy and nutritious food for all, provide a decent livelihood for actors and activities are climate smart!
Climate variability affecting rainfall patterns and agricultural seasons, and climate extremes such as floods, are among the key drivers behind the rise in hunger, together with conflict and economic slowdown.
There is real need for combined social protection and investment where the public and private sectors partner to expand rural growth especially in the agrifood sector. This will ensure the rural poor successfully and permanently exit poverty and hunger. Nurturing partnerships especially with agricultural technology service providers will go a long way to strengthening on-going and future interventions.
Development interventions should redirect the siloed approach to implementing their projects and programmes, and instead, explore active engagement with competent and experienced ( in-country) local service providers. This strategy would provide longevity to their development initiatives and render the desired impact on the rural (farming) population.
Ghana is an agrarian economy constituted by majority of food producers being with small and scattered land-holding. Let’s work together to increase their farming resilience, on-farm productivity, and profitability of rural farmers!
