    Info Note Agricultural Development and Value Chain Enhancement Activity II in Ghana 2016
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This case study estimates the GHG impacts from the implementation of an agricultural development project supported by USAID in Ghana. This case study identifies the magnitude of a larger set of GHG impacts and compares GHG impact strength of different field activities and cropping systems. As such, the assessment results are instrumental for informing investment and policy planners in Ghana when designing LED strategies in agriculture. The Agricultural Development and Value Chain Enhancement Act ivity II (ADVANCE II) overall achieved moderate GHG mitigation benefits that were driven by soil management improvements (-9,223 tCO2e/yr), crop residue burning reductions (-4,249 tCO2e/yr), and alternate wetting and drying (AWD) of irrigated rice (-858 tCO2e/yr). The moderate increase in fertilizers and pesticides use supported by the project leads to smaller increases in GHG emissions (1,244 tCO2e/yr and 2,514 tCO2e/yr respectively). ADVANCE II provides important benefits for Low emissions dev elopment (LED) by significantly reducing the crop emissions intensity (GHG emissions per unit of production). This is mainly achieved through strong growth in agricultural productivity and reductions in postharvest losses.
