About the product

Agriculture is the mainstay of the Ghanaian economy, providing food for its population and accounting for a large part of the nation's foreign exchange earnings. This study looks at rural poverty and food security at the household level in Ghana in terms of the impact of the Government's major structural adjustment programme on smallholder farmers. It traces the impact of macro-economic restructuring on those who live in poverty.
