The Ghana research was one component of the IFAD-IFPRI partnership on agriculture and climate change mitigation activities conducted by researchers from IFPRI and the University of Ghana. The overall objective of the study was to assess government organizations involved in policy/program formulation and those giving guidance to policy/program implementation on climate change; access to carbon markets and high‐value commodity markets in Ghana; and also assess institutional systems/structures that have the potential to facilitate access to carbon markets for smallholder farmers.
The study employed desktop literature survey to identify government organizations in climate change and high value agricultural commodity market access. A quick survey of key informants in key organizations involved in these areas was undertaken. Finally an in-depth case study that involved organizational capacity assessment of key government organizations in climate change and access to markets of high-value agricultural commodities was undertaken. These key government organizations were selected based on their strategic significance and experiences in the thematic issues under study
