The Ghana study sets out to explore the potential for linkages between agriculture and social protection in a context characterized by large-scale, self-targeted agricultural programmes in the agricultural sector and social assistance programmes framed around a life-course approach in the social protection domain. The project focuses on two core questions:
• What are the current experiences of achieving coherence between Ghana’s agricultural and social protection policies and programmes?
• What lessons and insights do these experiences hold for achieving more and better coordination between the two sectors?
This study took place in Ghana (Accra and Komenda-Edina-Eguafo-Abirem Municipal District) 20- 30 April 2015. The study was led by Luke Harman (ODI) along with local partners Dr Kofi Marfo and Mrs Joyce Haleegoah.
