Description

The aim of work package 4, which is co-lead by UNEP DTU and University of Ghana, is to analyse and develop inclusive sustainable business models that facilitate technological and economic upgrading of vegetable farmers by overcoming their investment constraints, enhancing skills levels, enabling dry-season farming, and engaging other key actors in the vegetable value network. The key technologies considered are small-scale irrigation and soil amendments using organic residues.
