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.
Ghana’s long term vision sets out to achieve consistently higher levels of GDP growth and job creation through increased production for both domestic and international markets.
The Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs) of Ghana are second-level administrative subdivisions of Ghana below the level of the regions. The districts of Ghana have gone through a number of re-organizations over the years under successive governments.
Ghana’s aspiration is to become a middle-income country by 2015, with a per capita income of US$1000 per annum. This is an ambitious target and will require an increase in average annual growth rate of GDP from 5% to about 8%.
This Policy is set within the context of Ghana’s long term strategic vision of achieving middle income status by 2012 and becoming a leading agro-industrial country in Africa.
