Current Research

My doctoral research focuses on examining the emergence and growth of smallholder farmers' organisations in Ghana and how they employ collective action in their engagement with government and private investors to safeguard the interest of smallholder farmers in large-scale land acquisitions (LSLA). It explores the complex ways in which smallholder farmers respond to the impacts of LSLA. The study also assesses the environmental and food security consequences of the (mal)adaptation strategies adopted by smallholder farmers in the face of LSLA. This doctoral research is part of a larger project “Mobilizing farmer organisations for sustainable agriculture in sub-Saharan Africa”.
