Ghana Agriculture Sector Investment Programme (GASIP)

The Ghana Agriculture Sector Investment Programme (GASIP) aims at providing a framework and institutional basis for a long-term engagement and supplementary financing for scaling up investments in private sector-led pro-poor agricultural value chain development. GASIP will contribute to the realization of Ghana’s Medium Term Agriculture Sector Investment Programme (METASIP), which provides the road map for the CAADP compact in Ghana.

The Ministry of Food and Agriculture (MOFA) will implement GASIP with the aim to promote a “standard setting approach” that will drive its policy, serve as a core investment for value chain development in Ghana, and for aligning parallel financing to complement, following the modalities that each of the Development Partners (DP) prefer.

In line with the agreed Strategic Framework for IFAD in Ghana (2012 COSOP), GASIP is built along four (4) strategic axis:

(i) linking smallholder farmers to agribusinesses to enhance pro-poor growth;

(ii) nationwide scaling up of a successful value chain investment approach;

(iii) promoting and mainstreaming climate change resilience approaches in Ghana, in particular in the northern regions, financed through the Adaptation for Smallholder Agriculture Programme (ASAP); and

(iv) knowledge management, harmonization of intervention approaches and policy optimization.
