Using the gap and decision analysis tools, this project proposes to strengthen the value chain in three sweet potato growing regions in Ghana to improve food security, agricultural productivity and economic value. This aligns with the themes and related strategic emphases of the Horticulture CRSP and USAID’s Feed the Future initiatives in Ghana as a focus country. Throughout the value chain analysis, gender and the status of children will be given elevated consideration to ensure the participation and benefit to women and children from project services and outcomes. By working with most of the actors along the value chain, this research has the potential to enhance the economic opportunities especially among resource-poor sections of the rural population.
