In Ghana, agriculture accounts for 40.65% (increasing at a decreasing rate) of employment, 69% of land use (according to the world bank, 2014), 70% of water use and up to 53% of greenhouse gas emissions. Most farmers live in poor rural communities. Growth from agriculture is at least twice as effective in reducing poverty than growth from any other sector, and it has one of the highest potentials to mitigate carbon emissions.
