Ghana’s Economic and Agricultural Transformation reveals that despite over 30 years of continuous growth in per capita income and rapid urbanization, Ghana has not industrialized and most of its workers remain trapped in low productivity work in agriculture and services. Using empirical analysis of the performance of Ghana’s economy and its agriculture sector over the past four decades, the recently published book offers key insights into harnessing agriculture’s potential for transformation in the country.

Join us as the book’s authors share important takeaways with major implications for policymakers and practitioners.
