A key priority for Ghana is to transform agricultural value chains for food and nutrition security and job and wealth creation in the most disadvantaged regions.

Projects such as the Savannah Zone Agricultural Productivity Improvement Project (SAPIP) focus on addressing key skills gaps for commercial farms and enhancing the infrastructure to increase agricultural productivity and diversification.


Following analysis of how best to support investment initiatives in Ghana, the Agricultural Skills Enhancement Programme concentrates on supporting projects such as the Savannah Zone Agricultural Productivity Improvement Project (SAPIP).
