Brief Description:Community Driven Initiatives for Food Security (CIFS)
PDA provides the Capacity Development Specialist on this 6-year bilateral programme funded by CIDA and implemented through the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development. The overall goal of CIFS is to contribute to increased food security in northern Ghana through an approach that is environmentally, economically and socially sustainable. The purpose is to demonstrate that community-driven initiatives, implemented within the existing framework for district planning, are an effective and sustainable way of increasing food security in northern Ghana. The project covers 10 districts in the eastern corridor of the Northern Region and employs capacity building as a key strategy for implementation in a manner that enables learning across districts and ensures that lessons and experiences from one district inform the way activities are implemented in other districts.
