Ghana is a Feed the Future initiative country. USAID is committed to addressing the root causes of hunger that limit the potential of millions of people and to establishing a lasting foundation for change by aligning our resources with country-owned processes and sustained, multi-stakeholder partnerships. USAID programs increase the competitiveness of Ghana's private sector by improving the enabling environment for private sector development, modernizing the agricultural sector, and strengthening the private sector's capacity to produce quality agricultural and agro-processed products.
The Integrated Coastal and Fisheries Governance Program assists Ghana to sustainably manage its marine ecosystems and improve the livelihoods and food security of coastal communities. It is implemented by the University of Rhode Island and the University of Cape Coast.
The Ghana Strategic Support Program addresses specific knowledge gaps concerning agricultural and rural development strategy implementation and develops methods to improve the data and knowledge base.
