|Hon. Clement Kofi Humado |
Minister for Food and Agriculture
of Ghana cited a PPP like the
Sorghum Value Chain Development
Project which was being sponsored
by the European Cooperative for
Rural Development with Guinness
Ghana Breweries Ltd (GGBL) as the
Private Sector and TechnoServe as
the implementing partner. He said
the overall goal was to develop a
stable and high-quality sorghum
supply chain that would increase
incomes of farmers and enable
GGBL to substitute imported grains
with locally produced sorghum.

The four-week long programme will use conventional learning techniques for principles of good business practice and case studies as problem-solving tool. The curriculum comprises 11 modules covering all aspects of modern management techniques and practices.
It includes five case studies of local agribusiness firms in Ghana to bring location-specific content into the course curriculum, and includes field trips and class projects to enable participants gain practical experience in managing agribusiness.
The University of Ghana, The Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad and the Indian Institute of Management Bangalore helped with curriculum development and programme delivery. The program is residential, with participants staying at the Executive Conference Center at the campus of GIMPA.
