International Workshop on Assessing Models of Public-Private Partnership for Irrigation Development (AMPPPIDA)

Irrigation is important in Ghana to deal with the erratic rainfall, especially in the context of climate change. Irrigation can minimize frequent food shortages that are attributable to dependence on rainfall, and increase yields. However, to do this effectively requires a range of infrastructure that will provide for a wide range of crops and efficient water use. The government of Ghana identifies Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) as a potential mechanism for expanding irrigation development, but is seeking evidence on appropriate models of PPP.
