Ghana’s Agric Sector Likely to be Worst Hit by Climate Change Report

The EPA has reported that Ghana’s agricultural sector could be severely impacted by climate change if measures are not taken immediately. Most farmers are poor, small landholders and do not have knowledge of sustainable agricultural practices, technology, or how to properly utilize natural resources. Increased temperature has also led to increased pest attacks. Currently, the World Bank and the United States Agency for the implementation of the Ghana Commercial Agricultural Project are contributing about $145 million to address food security in the country, particularly with the goal of producing enough rice to feed itself by 2017.
