Faith and Agriculture in Ghana

On Thursday, May 26, 2011, the WFDD convened a meeting at Georgetown University to discuss the findings of a three-month field investigation into the intersections of faith and agriculture in Ghana. The wide-ranging discussion emphasized the potential avenues for diverse religious groups in Ghana to address the problems found in the study, including lack of youth interest in agricultural careers and the rapid growth of urban centers, as well as concrete next steps. Additionally, participants discussed how faith-inspired initiatives on agriculture can learn from the much more developed and visible involvement of faith groups in global health issues. The meeting report is available below.
