Extreme rainfall indices in Ghana

The Sustainable Intensification of the Mixed Farming System Initiative (SIMFS) aims to provide equitable, transformative pathways for improved livelihoods of actors in mixed farming systems through sustainable intensification within target agro-ecologies and socioeconomic settings. Implemented in Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Ghana, Laos PDR, Nepal, and Malawi; this Initiative works with a wide array of partners, including demand, innovation, and scaling partners from national agricultural research and extension systems, universities, local and international NGOs, farmer associations, agricultural administrations, international agricultural research centers, national governments, policymakers, and the private sector.
