Empowering Ghana's Agriculture: Customizing Digital Agro-Climate Advisories to Tackle Climate Change Challenges
- Impact Area
The workshop convened key stakeholders in Ghana’s agricultural sector, representing diverse institutions and key stakeholders across the country’s major agro-ecological zones: Savannah, Transitional, and Forest. The objective of this workshop was to map and profile major crops with their descriptors and fertilizers recommendations for integration into Digital AgroClimate Advisory (DACA). This mobile-based platform seeks to provide location-specific agro-climate advisories, offering tailored information to agricultural value chain actors. The workshop successfully mapped major crops and created a comprehensive database for specific agro-ecological zones. This information will enhance DACA, promoting sustainability and resilience in Ghana’s agriculture. The report underscores the need for interdisciplinary collaboration and technology-driven solutions to combat climate challenges in agriculture.
