Abstract:This volume explores the contemporary developmental aspects of agricultural extension in Ghana from a farmer-centred perspective. It shifts away from more common technology-centred approaches and addresses the importance of community involvement as well. In so doing, it touches upon issues of poverty, gender, asset acquisition, urban agriculture, and regional markets. All contributors are affiliated to the University of Ghana. Contributions: Changing approaches to farmer participation in agricultural research and extension and its practice in Ghana (Comfort K. Freeman); Review of agricultural extension delivery in Ghana and its impact on poverty reduction and livelihood outcomes (John N. Gyenfie, Seth D. Boateng & Paschal B. Atengdem); Contribution of urban agriculture to livelihood outcomes of urban farmers (Seth D. Boateng & Alidu Abdul-Fatahi); 'Assets' acquisition and their implications for agricultural extension interventions (Seth D. Boateng & Jonathan N. Anaglo); Tools and strategies for designing gender-sensitive policies for linking smallholder agricultural producers to regional markets (O. Sakyi-Dawson & Comfort K. Freeman); Economic empowerment of rural women in agriculture: influencing factors and challenges (Paschal B. Atengdem & Jonathan N. Anaglo). [ASC Leiden abstract]
