Ghana - Program on Affirmative Finance Action for Women in Africa (AFAWA): Financing climate resilient agricultural practices in Ghana - ESMS


The African Development Bank’s Feed Africa Strategy has identified innovative financing as critical to mobilizing resources for Climate Resilience Agricultural (CRA) transformation in the continent. The Risk Sharing Financing Mechanism has been proposed as one of the flagships for the Feed Africa Strategy and is premised on developing de-risking instruments, technical assistance, integrated ICT platforms, performance management, and incentives that would bridge the gaps between CRA and financing value chains. With the financial support from the AfDB, Ghana has taken the lead under this initiative with ‘Ghana Incentive-Based Risk-Sharing System for Agricultural Lending (GIRSAL) Project.
