Regional Dissemination Workshop on Agricultural Trends and Progress in Living Conditions, May 12-15, 2009, Accra, Ghana
admin - Fri, 05/08/2009

Organized jointly by ECOWAS and ReSAKSS-West Africa, this workshop aims to present and discuss the findings of national studies undertaken by ReSAKSS-West Africa to monitor progress in the agricultural sector and living conditions in nine West African countries, including Ghana.

The studies consider agricultural expenditures in relation to the Maputo declaration of 10 percent national budgetary allocation to agriculture and recent achievements and emerging trends in agricultural productivity and growth, poverty reduction and alleviation of hunger and child malnutrition in West African countries. The studies also took stock of the food price crisis in 2007/08 by documenting the appearance and the evolution of the food crisis, food supply and demand profile of each country and documenting responses by each country. Proceedings from the workshop will be available on the ReSAKSS website following the event.
