Ministry of Food & Agriculture (MoFA), Ghana

MoFA is charged with implementing national agricultural extension policies and responding to regional agricultural  priorities. Smallholders are a priority group for the Ministry, given the large number of smallholders in the region, and it is involved in a variety of initiatives to support them. It provides technical agricultural training through a network of extension agents and the empowerment of women is an explicit goal.

CSD visited three villages assisted by MoFA Central Region during the field work: Ekon (a fishing village on the outskirts of Cape Coast), Krofu and Bobikuma (both agricultural villages in the rural interior of the Central Region).
