The Ghana Agricultural Sector Investment Programme (GASIP) has successfully ended a three-day retreat under the theme: Consolidating the gains - strengthening farmer-based organizations: Experiences, lessons learnt and moving forward. The retreat which took place from 21 to 23 October 2020 was meant to review activities of the Program to date, plan for 2021 as well as planning for other project activities that fall under the management of the Program Coordinating Unit.

The retreat was attended by key stakeholders from IFAD, Ministry of Food and Agriculture, Ministry of Finance, other collaborating projects, selected beneficiaries as well as the staff of the Programme.

Key activities and action plans have been agreed upon, which will be very crucial to the 2021 program implementation strategy.

GASIP wishes to thank all stakeholders who attended the retreat for their useful contributions.

Parliament has approved a $20 million agreement between the government and the International Fund for Agricultural Development to the mitigate threat to food production due to COVID-19.

Under a programme called the Emergency Support to Rural Livelihoods and Food systems exposed to COVID-19, 5,000 vulnerable households will receive cash transfers amounting to the Ghana cedi equivalent of $100.

Selection of beneficiaries will be done in collaboration with the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection and other state institutions.

According to the Report on the Finance Committee of the Parliament, the project will contribute to protecting livelihoods, incomes and the resilience of target groups in the era of COVID-19.

IFAD has indicated that the total project cost will be $41.56 million.

But it will be spending $20 million.

The co-financiers of the deal are Canada with $ 2.64 million and the World Food Programme with $2.02 million.
