Improving the food policy process: Lessons from capacity strengthening of parliamentarians in Ghana

Jagdeep S. Chhokar, Suresh Chandra Babu and Shashi Kolavalli

No 1401, IFPRI discussion papers from International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI)

Abstract: In this paper, we document an approach to capacity strengthening of parliamentarians in Ghana and attempt to gauge to what extent and under what conditions such investments could lead to better debates and informed policymaking to promote growth and poverty reduction. We traced a group of Ghanaian parliamentarians to draw lessons after their study and exposure visit to India. Exposure visits changed participants’ knowledge, outlook, and thinking toward agricultural policies.
