The objective of the programme is to contribute to sustainable poverty reduction in rural Ghana, ensuring that agribusinesses including smallholders increase their profitability and resilience to climate change. The programme is national in scope. The implementation follows a demand and market-driven approach that will provide a basis for scaling up investments in pro-poor agricultural value chain development led by the private sector.
GASIP will competitively evaluate agribusiness development proposals from value chain cluster drivers (private sector, government, civil society, research, Farmer-Based Organizations, etc.) that show promise to positively impact on smallholder farmers and ultimately on Ghana’s economy.
The strategic focus of GASIP is on smallholder farmers, to make them more competitive by increasing their capacity to respond to market demands in terms of quality, price, time and volume thus contributing to Ghana’s agriculture objectives.
