Denmark and Ghana have entered into a pivotal partnership between Ghana’s Tree Crops Development Authority (TCDA) and cBrain Omni Ghana, a subsidiary of the esteemed Danish company cBrain, renowned for delivering world-class digital solutions.

The collaboration was formalized through the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the 6-year Ghana Tree Crop Diversification Project, generously funded by the International Development Association (IDA) of the World Bank Group.

This transformative initiative, valued at US$100 million, aims to bolster economic, climate, and social resilience within selected tree crop value chains.

One of the key facets of this collaboration is the crucial role played by digitalization in revolutionizing public processes within the agricultural sector. cBrain Omni Ghana’s pivotal role involves providing TCDA with a cutting-edge digital platform, setting the stage for enhanced operational efficiency and innovation in the tree crop sector. The infusion of digital technology is anticipated to streamline and optimize various public processes, leading to improved transparency, accountability, and accessibility.

Ambassador Tom Nørring and other key stakeholders in the sector graced the momentous signing ceremony, underscoring the significance of this collaboration for the sustainable development of Ghana’s agricultural landscape.

The Ghana Tree Crop Diversification Project is structured around three interconnected technical components:
Institutional Strengthening and Value Chain Governance: Focused on fortifying institutions and governance structures to ensure a robust foundation for sustainable development.

Improving Tree Crops Productivity and Climate Resilience: Targeting advancements in productivity and climate resilience within the tree crop sector through innovative and sustainable practices.
Support for Post-Harvest Management, Value Addition, and Market Access: Aiming to enhance the entire value chain by addressing critical aspects of post-harvest management, value addition, and market access.

This initiative aligns with Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 13 (Climate Action), 16 (Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions), and 17 (Partnerships for the Goals), reflecting the commitment of both TCDA and cBrain Omni Ghana to contribute towards a more sustainable and resilient future.

The collaboration signifies a shared vision for fostering positive change in Ghana’s agricultural sector, reinforcing the importance of public-private partnerships in achieving sustainable development goals.
