APRA is a five-year research programme that will focus on different pathways to agriculture commercialisation in sub-Saharan Africa. Based at IDS the project also has regional hubs in Ghana, Kenya and South Africa.
Recent discussions amongst the Ghana hub and stakeholders in the agriculture sector have been captured in the Ghanaian media, Joy Online, marking the importance of the early stages of the project and possible impacts APRA will have on agricultural policy in the country.
The consortium will analyse the impacts and outcomes of pathways to agricultural commercialisation on rural poverty, empowerment of women and girls and food and nutrition security and will concentrate on Ethiopia, Ghana, Malawi, Nigeria, Tanzania and Zimbabwe.
