dc.description.abstract To overcome food insecurity and poverty in food deficit countries, losses occurring post-harvest need to be halted. This brief features innovations that focus more on supply and value addition segments of value chains, as opposed to an on-farm segment. Some national policy and legislation actions are suggested that could fast track initiatives for PH loss reduction in Ghana, such as: facilitating access to credit and markets by Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), PH extension policy to promote postharvest best practices and build local capacity, formal-informal sector gap bridging policy to promote participation in entrepreneurships. en
