Securing Access to Land for Urban and Peri-urban Farmers


URBANET in collaboration with ActionAid Ghana initiated a project to promote urban and peri-urban vulnerable farmers access to land for farming. The project was preceded with a research, community level sensitization, dialogue meetings with stakeholders (chiefs/land owners, planning authorities) and culminated in a project dubbed: zoning of agricultural lands/green belts. The project has since facilitated the zoning of about 475 acres of land in urban and peri-urban Tamale to be reserved purposely for agriculture especially to support women engaged in vegetable farming as their main source of livelihoods.
