Smallholder Agriculture Development Project (SHAD) project is being implemented to increase the productivity of smallholder men and women farmers, increase their income along the value chain and ensure food security.
To achieve this, the project strengthens the capacity of smallholder farmers on a sustainable basis to hold governments accountable on their commitments to the agricultural sector and to actively engage in the formulation and monitoring of agriculture policies and programmes in Ghana.
The specific objectives are:
• Increased public awareness on Comprehensive Africa Agricultural Development Plan (CAADP) provisions and the extent to which government has fulfilled the promise to invest in agriculture development;
• Increased capacity of citizens and smallholder farmers particularly women farmers in 38 districts in Ghana to hold duty bearers at the district level accountable.
• Increased citizens and smallholder farmers’ awareness of government’s commitment to invest in the agricultural sector and demand accountability from government in the implementation of pro poor agriculture related programmes and policies.
This project is being funded by Diakonia, Trust Africa and Oxfam
