The Science and Technology Policy Research Institute (STEPRI), of the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) has held a  two day “Dissemination and Agenda Setting” workshop at  the MENSVIC Grand HOTEL, East Legon, Accra, Ghana.

The CSIR-STEPRI is coordinating a project to develop a national policy and technical regulation for aflatoxin control in food and feed. As part of the process, a situational analysis has been conducted to understand the current state of affairs with regard to issues related to aflatoxins in Ghana. The overall goal of the project is to catalyse and sustain an inclusive agricultural transformation by farmers, traders, processors, other value chain actors and consumers.

This workshop was, therefore, used to share findings from the situational analysis and to discuss and identify emerging issues of policy-relevance.
