No 7, GSSP policy notes from International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI)

Abstract: Ghana is among the African nations that committed to develop agriculture as part of the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP), the agricultural program of the New Partnership for Africa’s Development(NEPAD), which in turn is a program of the African Union (AU). In the 2003 Maputo Declaration, which was reaffirmed at the 2014 AU Summit in Malabo, African leaders pledged to deepen their commitments to agricultural growth and agreed that increasing their spending on agriculture to 10 percent of annual national budgets and achieving 6 percent annual growth in the sector would be indicators of that deeper commitment.
