The Queen Elizabeth Scholars (QES) program has funded Netlinks, a McGill University-University of Ghana-Universite Joseph ki-ZERBO to strengthen the capacity of researchers who work with farmers, entrepreneurs, community leaders, and local institutions to develop solutions to agriculture and food and nutrition security. We seek to improve especially the lives of adolescent girls and women farmers in rural Ghana through expanding knowledge and skills, and improving access to services and markets.

Cross-cutting research issues will include but not be limited to

  • The quality of production of small-scale women farmers working in the area of high-value animal products and other agricultural commodities,
  • Farmers’ association(s) and cooperatives to support women farmers and facilitate access to agriculture and financial services and development of small businesses,
  • Adolescent girls’ and young women’s knowledge and skills needed to become successful agriculture-related entrepreneurs; and
  • Institutional collaborations to provide services and support for adolescent girls and women’s nutrition, development, and income generation potential.
