2020 Comprehensive Food Security and Vulnerability Analysis findings
28 December 2021
The Government of Ghana (GoG), through the Ministry of Food and Agriculture (MoFA) and the Ghana Statistical Service (GSS), in collaboration with the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) conducted a nationwide Comprehensive Food Security and Vulnerability Analysis (CFSVA) for Ghana in 2020.
The Report, published in December 2021, revealed some interesting findings that suggest a need to review Ghana’s food and nutrition interventions to improve food security - availability, access, utilisation and stability.
The analysis found that 3.6 million of Ghana’s population, representing 11.7%, are food insecure. Those found to be food insecure are those in larger household size, households with less educated heads, male-headed households and households that have access to lands for farming. The analysis was conducted under the World Bank Pandemic Emergency Financing Facility.
