Technical feasibility Studies on investment into Land Development for Commercial Agriculture in the SADA Zone Valleys

Country: Ghana

Sector(s): Agriculture and rural development

Date: 05/2014 - 02/2017

Client / Beneficiary: Ministry of Food and Agriculture

Financing Agency: World Bank

Project Value: 273,401,443 €

Description of the project and Services provided:

Background: The Government of Ghana has received funding from the International Development Association (IDA) and USAID for the implementation of the Ghana Commercial Agriculture Project (GCAP). ‘Modernizing agriculture’ remains the overarching theme of Ghana’s agricultural policy as well as the new (draft) private sector development strategy. It focuses on a stronger role for the private sector in transforming agriculture from a low-productivity subsistence-based sector to one characterized by high-productivity, integrated value chains, and extensive value addition.

The global objective: The project development objective is increased access to land, private sector finance input- and output-markets by smallholder farms from public-private partnerships in commercial agriculture in Accra Plains and SADA zone. The project aims at improving the investment climate for agri-business and the establishment of inclusive PPPs aimed at increasing on-farm productivity and value addition in selected value chains. The main outcome of the project would be an improved investment climate that delivers more inclusive private sector investment in agriculture.
