The Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP) is at the heart of efforts by African governments to accelerate growth and eliminate poverty and hunger among African countries. In the West Africa region, the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) has been mandated to support and coordinate the implementation of the program. In this context, ECOWAS developed the regional agricultural policy (ECOWAP).

This document presents the concrete investment programme of Ghana regarding the ECOWAP/CAADP agenda.

Its detractors have argued that it is merely a political ploy.
