Ghana’s sub-national food systems dialogues will be held under the theme “Developing a Resilient and Equitable Food System for Improved Food and Nutrition Security”. It will bring together food systems actors such as producers, transporters, processors, retailers, consumers, waste managers, academics, policymakers, the private sector, youth, and women to deliberate on food systems at sub-national levels of the country.
The objective of the dialogue is to share information and reflect on the status of food systems of Ghana’ agro-ecological zones which cut across the three special development authorities of the Country, namely 1)Northern Development Authority; 2) Middle-Belt Development Authority; and 3) Coastal Belt Development Authority which represents the three broad geographical belts of the country.
The objectives of the dialogue are to identify the peculiar challenges and constraints, potentials and opportunities within each agro-ecological zone, and ideas to transform local food systems, including roles and responsibilities. The dialogue will entail a framing presentation on the local food systems of each special development authority, and five break-out sessions based on the Food Systems Summit Action Tracks, and a plenary to share and build consensus on key recommendations for transforming the food systems of the Special Development Authorities.
