August 10, 2023 - Author: Monica P. Lambon-Quayefio, Kwame Adjei-Mantey, Emmanuel Adu-Danso
Key Policy Messages
- The pace of structural transformation in rural spaces in Ghana over the last few decades has been slow.
- Improvements in access to electricity in these rural spaces could spur structural transformation.
- Public policy should be aimed at sustaining infrastructure investment in rural electrification through Public-Private-Partnerships (PPPs) while expanding electricity access and reliability through renewable energy systems.
- The Ministry of Food and Agriculture can take the lead in coordinating the development and implementation of these policies and programs which could accelerate the pace of structural transformation in rural spaces in Ghana to improve livelihoods and wellbeing of the rural labour force.
