Market Oriented Agriculture Programme in Ghana- MOAP Ghana

The European Union (EU) funded MOAP programme has been designed to support auxiliary agricultural infrastructure creation and productive investments in North West Ghana. It specifically targets planning, productive use and maintenance of infrastructure through strong community involvement, capacity building of local authorities and entrepreneurs along the entire value chains. The programme also strengthens farmers’ service delivery systems.

These soft outputs include preparing the ground for infrastructure development and building the capacities of users and local government for their productive use and maintenance.

Editorial Note

Several development interventions have been ongoing in the savannah regions of Ghana, including the Savannah Zone Agricultural Productivity Improvement Project (SAPIP) financed by the African Development Bank (AfDB). It is our hope that these initiatives are focused on making productive impact: raising farm incomes and enriching the living conditions of the targeted rural smallholder farmers.

Over the past two decades most of these interventions have exited with very limited traceable impact. We will continue to keep track of these interventions.
