In looking at the data and talking to stakeholders in Ghana, several key trends are starting to emerge in the country’s fertilizer market and in turn through the data captured in the VIFAA Ghana Dashboard. These trends are important for decision-makers planning for each season, and when thinking about the future of the market. In this blog we’ll dive into these features of the Ghana market, including where (and how) the data fits in.
On September 22nd, Development Gateway along with IFDC, AfricaFertilizer.org, and AFAP launched the VIFAA Ghana Fertilizer Dashboard. Visualizing Insights for African Agriculture (VIFAA) was designed to holistically address the supply, demand, and use of fertilizer data at both country and regional levels and to improve decision-making in the sector. Overall, the goal is to support stakeholders in getting the right quantity and type of fertilizer to Ghanaian farmers in time for planting. Learn more about how stakeholders plan to use the dashboard in their work.
Launching this week, the VIFAA Ghana Fertilizer Dashboard aims to fill key fertilizer information gaps, increase data-driven policy and investment decisions in the fertilizer sector, and develop comprehensive, user-centered fertilizer data dashboards. Here is a deep dive into what is visualized on the dashboard.
In partnership with Africafertilizer.org, the International Fertilizer Development Center, the Ghana Ministry of Food and Agriculture, Ghana Statistical Service, the Ghana Revenue Authority, Ghana Cocoa Board, and other partners, DG had a soft launch of the new Ghana fertilizer dashboard.
