Center for Women and Food Security-Ghana Food Security Research and Advocacy, rural farmer education.

Center for Women and Food Security-Ghana (CeWaFS-Ghana) is a community development based organization seeking to support the education, empowerment and engagement of women in Ghana’s agricultural value chains; the organization researches into the effect of natural resource management on farm productivity, and addresses knowledge gaps to improve agricultural policy and funding. To help achieve food security and reduce poverty, sustainable natural resource management and measures to stabilize and increase soil productivity need to be taken without delay. The use of indigenous knowledge in solving food shortage remains a powerful means of sustaining rural household food security. CeWaFS-Ghana leverages traditional knowledge on natural resources management for food security. One effective means to achieve household food security in rural Ghana is by recognizing, supporting and helping improve the agricultural skills of rural women. A number of changes will strengthen women’s contribution.
