Since the mid-1980s, Ghana's impressive development and growth have made the country one of the strongest performers in Africa. Ghana attained lower middle-income status in 2011, following three decades of robust economic growth fostered by political stability and a relatively conducive investment climate as well as by the developments of some key economic sectors. While Ghana's overall poverty rate has declined in some regions, especially in the South and large cities which have experienced rapid development, poverty remains widespread particularly in rural regions. The three Northern regions for instance have only seen marginal decreases with poverty rates two to three times the national average and chronic food insecurity. The objective of this consultancy mission was to identify a set of actions that could potentially be implemented during the timeframe of the 11th EDF (2014 – 2020) within the three main sectors: agriculture, water and energy.
