Ghana Yam Sector Development Strategy
The Ghana Yam Sector Strategy has been formulated in response to a request from the Government of Ghana to support the development of the yam sector in terms of production, value addition and commercialization.
The Ghana Yam Development Strategy is a bottom-up policy process that started in 2012. It has been led by a public-private appointed Committee and championed by the Ministry of Food and Agriculture and the Ministry of Trade and Industry. The International Trade Centre (ITC) and the International Institute for Tropical Agriculture (IITA) have provided technical backstopping and process facilitation.
