Four parallel teams visited different sites in the Upper East and Northern Regions of the country: West Mamprusi and Mamprugu Moagduri Districts in the Northern Region, Kassena Nankana West, Talensi, Builsa South, Bawku West Districts in the Upper East Region.
participants had the opportunity to interact with farmers, community
chiefs and local government officials (Department of Agriculture) to learn
how local communities are benefitting from project activities.
Post-trip feedback indicates that participants were highly impressed and valued the South-South opportunity to exchange experiences on:
Key lessons learned from field trips
