The Country Platform (CP) in Ghana has been very active in the past year. The National Steering Committee (NSC), the technical support team (Working Group) and the local multistakeholder platforms (MSPs) at the total of six action-learning sites continued to support the two main projects: Scaling Up Local Capacity to Innovate in Food and Nutrition Security (SULCI-FaNS) and Ethnoveterinary Research and Development (EthnoVet). The activities revolving around facilitation of participatory innovation development (PID), institutionalisation, networking and learning with farmers and among the other stakeholders in agricultural research and development. The NSC chair, Naaminong Karbo, died in August 2022 and was replaced by George Essegbey, a senior member of the NSC. Ms Margaret Kyiu, CP coordinator and SULCI-FaNS project coordinator, resigned in 2022 and will be replaced in 2023. These changes were carefully managed to reduce any negative impacts on the CP’s performance.
The 2022 report summarises the CP’s key achievements during the year and includes a self-assessment of the CP’s functioning.
