Faith and Agriculture in Ghana: Implications for Development Programming
May 1, 2011
This report reflects a three month review in Ghana in early 2010, conducted by a team led by the World Faiths Development Dialogue. The first investigation of its kind, the study aimed to shed light on links between faith and agriculture in Ghana, and thus to foster critical reflection among government, development partners, NGOs, and faith-inspired organizations, with possible broader applications. It explores three discrete areas at the intersection of faith and agriculture: the landscape of faith communities at the grassroots in agriculture; the institutional potential of faith communities as delivery mechanisms; and potential strategies and interventions to enhance the contributions of faith communities to agriculture at the grassroots level.
