Balanced fertilizers are essential for sustainable agricultural intensification. Widespread adoption of appropriate fertilizers requires a transformation of the fertilizer and food systems that must be driven by evidence-based agro-technical perspectives embedded in multi-stakeholder processes to create enabling conditions for adoption. This public-private program in Ghana “Fertilizer Systems Research and Field Implementation” will integrate an on-the-ground implementation program to develop the fertilizer value chain and transdisciplinary research by PhD’s and Postdoc’s. The program will, among others, interact with the Ghanaian Agricultural Program “Planting for Food and Jobs” to enhance its impact. The graduates will be supervised by internationally renowned universities and strengthen the research capacity at Ghanaian institutions, the Mohammed VI Polytechnic University in Morocco and IFDC. IFDC leads the program, carrying out the implementation component and co-supervising the researchers in the program.
We are looking for an overall coordinator in Ghana of the “Fertilizer Systems Research and Field Implementation” program to support the Principle Investigator.
