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).
