Validation and Capacity Building of FBOs in Ghana

Date: 
Wednesday, February 28, 2018
The Ministry of Food and Agriculture (MoFA), envisions to strive for a modernized agricultural sector that will contribute to food security, employment opportunities and reduced poverty for Ghana’s population. Farmer-based Organizations (FBOs) have therefore been identified and promoted as one of the avenues to achieve this goal. FBOs provide opportunities for farmers to benefit from economies of scale, better bargaining power and a stronger voice in policy development. Well- organized FBOs promote farming as a business, with linkages along the product value chain.
