Summer School in Ghana on Urban and Periurban Agriculture in West African Cities

From 28th September to 3rd October 2014, the Urban Food Plus (UFP) project will be conducting a summer school on urban and periurban agriculture (UPA) at the University for Development Studies (UDS) in Tamale/Ghana. The aim of the summer school is to present the state of the art on UPA and the on-going research activities of UFP in two West African cities (Tamale/Ghana and Ouagadougou/Burkina Faso). The UFP summer school will bring together researchers, policy makers and practitioners from Africa and Europe. A special focus of the summer school will be on the potentials of biochar as a soil amendment in the context of Ghana.

The international UFP project investigates options for enhancing resource use efficiency in urban and periurban agriculture for improved food security in West African cities. It is funded by the German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). The IEE is coordinating UFP sub-project "Economics", which is assessing the economic impacts of biochar application and improved irrigation management.

For more information on UFP see the UFP section on our website.
