Strengthening Agri-Food Value Chains for Nutrition: Mapping Value Chains for Nutrient-Dense Foods in Ghana

Published on 1 March 2013

This report was produced as part of the Reducing Hunger and Undernutrition Programme, funded by DFID and is part of a project on strengthening agri-food value chains for nutrition.

By providing evidence on value chains, this report assesses the potential of a number of products to contribute to reducing undernutrition in Ghana.

It analyses the challenges that inhibit these products from having greater impact and identifies options for development agencies, public-private partnerships and others to help address these challenges.

It focuses on the key actors and processes involved in producing, processing and delivering foods to consumers. This report supports an accompanying set of policy guidelines, which outline programmatic and policy approaches to promote the provision of nutrient-dense foods in Ghana.

Both this mapping report and the accompanying policy guidelines are based on a value chain framework for assessing the impact of food-based and market-based approaches to address undernutrition.
