Productive groundnut farming for women farmers in Ghana

Groundnut farms in Brong-Ahafo region are being affected by delayed rainfall or heavy rains due to changes in climatic conditions. With support from the Global Environment Facility Small Grant Programme of the United Nations Development Programme, farmers are adopting improved soil and water conservation, preparation and use of organic manure and cultivation of short-term drought resistant seeds. The project has also provided almost 200 households with improved cookstoves, reducing local deforestation and improving health.
