The Case of Tomato in Ghana: Summary of Stakeholder Dialogue
The Ghana Strategy Support Program has released a new working paper that summarizes the stakeholder dialogue hosted by Ghana’s Ministry of Food and Agriculture (MoFA) and the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), and titled “Transforming Agriculture: The Case of Tomatoes in Ghana.”
On 23 April 2010, farmers, traders, processors, agribusiness, Ghanaian and international academics, donors, and officials met in Accra for an exchange of views on how to revive the strategic but ailing tomato sector. The dialogue was organized by Ghana’s Ministry of Food and Agriculture (MoFA) and the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), and centered around the presentation and discussion of a case study of the tomato sector in Ghana that addressed productivity, processing, marketing, and institutional support. The dialogue was an important step in an ongoing study of the tomato sector that involves a range of stakeholders, mirroring the diversity of the dialogue participants.
