    Strengthening coherence between agriculture and social protection: Ghana country case study report 2016
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This study forms part of seven country case studies carried out as part of the FAO project “Strengthening Coherence between Agriculture and Social Protection”. Ghana was selected as one of the countries because of its emerging social protection agenda and the presence of a now well-established National Social Protection Strategy, along with the growing importance at policy level attached to issues of coherence and coordination. The study in Ghana followed a common approach and framework set out as part of the country case studies, and involved looking at the context (including policies and programmes), coordination and outcomes. This was carried out through a combination of an initial desk-based review, which involved reviewing key documents covering development strategy, agricultural and social protection policy and research papers. A two-week in-country data collection exercise was then carried out, involving a number of key informant interviews (KIIs) with various ministry staff and development partners (donors) and focus group discussions with local communities (FGDs).1 At the end of the data collection period, key informants from the national level were invited to a validation workshop held in Accra at the FAO Ghana Office, where the emerging findings were presented and discussed. The study involved looking across both the agricultural and social protection spheres at the national and subnational levels.

    Lessons Learning from FAO’s Initiative on Soaring Food Prices in Zambia 2010
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    In response to the global food crisis, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) launched its Initiative on Soaring Food Prices (ISFP), combining the promotion of quick-response agricultural growth led by small-scale farmers (SSFs), with targeted programmes to ensure that both food-insecure consumers and smallholder producers have access to adequate food. In Zambia the ISFP provided support through: 1) emergency ISFP projects, TCP/RAF/3206 (08/VIII/RAF/262) and TCP/ZAM/3 201 (08/VI/ZAM/209); 2) an interagency rapid assessment mission with the Government of Zambia-FAO-WFP (20 July -15 August 2008); and 3) the EU Food Facility, GCP/ZAM/066 EC (June 2009 – July 2011). It is essential to draw lessons from the support provided under the umbrella of ISFP projects, especially the inputs distribution programme, policy support and technical assistance in order for FAO to respond more effectively to similar crises in the future. Zambia was selected among the IS FP beneficiary countries to carry out the lessons learning exercise. The objective of this study is to show areas where this kind of support can be improved and highlight strengths and good practices that can be replicated in the future. This study looks at how the ISFP activities in Zambia were implemented and how the expected outcomes were achieved, rather than looking at the products/activities themselves. The focus is on how the ISFP programmes in Zambia have been perceived by the different stakeholders involved. The reports present a brief background on FAO interventions in Zambia and the methodology used, followed by views and perceptions of the different stakeholders interviewed. Finally the main lessons learned and recommendations are summarized. This exercise was carried out from July until October 2010.
