TOWARDS ACHIEVING FOOD SECURITY IN GHANA: ASSESSING THE INTEGRATION OF FOOD SECURITY ELEMENTS IN AGRICULTURAL POLICIES. THE CASE OF METASIP (I & II) AND IFJ
Universally, indicators used in measuring food security are difficult. Nonetheless, FAO together with the IFAD and the WFP have proposed a suite of dimensions (Availability, Accessibility, Utilisation and Stability) that describe food security in which the world appears to be comfortable with. This study therefore sought to evaluate the scope to which METASIP I & II and IFJ took into consideration the four main food security dimensions. A systematic desktop search strategy to gather literature from scientific databases and policy reports was adopted. The study found that only the availability and stability dimensions of food security were extensively considered, covered and implemented under the policies.
