Ghana: Linking women to agribusiness markets

By providing support to partner institutions and government agencies, this project links women and their associated agribusinesses to commercially viable opportunities and value chains. It improves the livelihoods of farming communities and creates job opportunities across several sectors, focusing on identifying global market opportunities for Ghana’s fresh and processed yam.

The aim of this project is to implement recommendations of the national development strategy for yam and associated farming systems developed jointly by ITC, the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) and national stakeholders. The strategy began in 2012 and has been led by the Ghanaian private sector with the support of the government of Ghana.
