The Peasant Farmers Association of Ghana (PFAG) has called on government to review and improve the Planting for Food and Jobs (PFJ) program. The PFAG carried out an assessment to understand farmers’ experiences with the implementation of the PFJ in 2022 and provide evidence to influence the implementation modalities of the proposed “Enhanced- PFJ” being developed by the Ministry of Food and Agriculture (MoFA).
The assessment which was carried out in twenty-six districts across nine regions engaged various stakeholders including fertilizer suppliers, input dealers, farmers and national and local level implementers.
The findings were validated by different stakeholders from the agricultural sector including officers from the various departments of agriculture from the decentralized to the national level at two different workshops in Tamale and Accra.
This position paper (https://peasantfarmers.com/upload/POSITION PAPER FROM PFAG_Finale.pdf) summarises the findings of the assessment and recommendations for improving the program.
This activity was carried out with support from GIZ, International Budget Partnership and OXFAM in Ghana.
