Spotlight on P4P in Ghana

Overview – P4P in Ghana

P4P in Ghana aims to address low productivity, post-harvest losses and poor market infrastructure. Farmers receive training from WFP and partners in skills along the value chain — including production, post-harvest handling, marketing and quality control — to improve the quality and quantity of their products. Direct contracts with WFP have provided a substantial and reliable market f0r farmers’ organizations. P4P-supported farmers’ organizations in Ghana have also participated in soft tenders, allowing them to learn competitive processing. This prepares them to progress towards taking part in traditional competitive procurement. WFP and its partners are currently working to enhance infrastructure through community storage facilities and energy-saving stoves, further assisting farmers to reach markets.
