Ghana IAP factsheet

The Integrated Approach Programme on food security in Sub-Saharan Africa targets agro-ecological systems where the need to enhance food security is directly linked to opportunities for generating local and global environmental benefits. Being an integral part of the 12 country regional programme, the Sustainable Land and Water project will contribute to the collective impact of this programme, which is intended to inform approaches to food security in the drylands of sub-Saharan Africa towards win-win solutions between food production and maintaining ecosystem services in the face of anticipated climate shocks.

The Sustainable and Water Land Management Project is currently financed by the GEF and in-kind contribution from the Government of Ghana. The project implementation started in May 2011, with a first additional financing in May 2014. The proposed child IAP project will be considered as an Additional Financing, building on the enabling existing systems, structures, and capacities developed under the SLWMP to improve food security using a landscape/ecosystem approach.
