The campaign issues to be addressed include but not limited to: access to social protection, agriculture aid effectiveness, national food security policies, increase public and private investment in smallholder agriculture, land rights and national climate change adaptation and agriculture plans. The project will contribute to the Programme Implementation Plan (PIP) outcomes by catalysing increased quantity and quality of public and private investment in agriculture in order to secure, improve and sustain the productivity, resilience and well -being of women and other smallholder farmers, their households and communities in Ghana. It further aims to consolidate, leverage, and enhance the impact of commitments made by government and donors in support of smallholder agriculture in Ghana and beyond. The project will empower women and other smallholder producers' organization, civil society and media with skills to influence and challenge policies and practices that affect them. This will involve engaging in budget advocacy to increase allocation and spending on agriculture, tracking agriculture budgets, convening platforms for policy influencing and good agriculture governance, and building local, national, regional and global alliances to promote investments in agriculture targeting women and other smallholder farmers
