Prolinnova-Ghana National Workshop successfully completed

Prolinnova’s present and future partners in Ghana met on 7–11 September 2003 in Koforidua, Southern Ghana, to discuss and plan for a Prolinnova multi-stakeholder programme in the country. The national workshop built on the results of three zonal workshops that were held in Tamale for the Northern Zone, Kumasi for the Middle Belt and Accra for the Southern Zone. These zonal workshops played a crucial role in the planning process in allowing more people to exchange experiences and provide suggestions for priority action areas for Prolinnova-Ghana.
