Investment Advisor - Agriculture

Strategically located with access to West Africa’s 350 million population, Ghana is a peaceful country evident by democratic political stability over the last 20 years. Investor confidence has grown in recent years following an upgrade in Standard & Poor’s rating to B with a stable outlook for the first time in over a decade.

Agriculture provides the lifeline for millions of livelihoods in Ghana by offering jobs, food nutrition and a firm foothold for Ghana’s economy. The Government of Ghana (GoG) is committed to increasing productivity and thereby catalysing a structural transformation in the economy through increased rural incomes and job creation. To contribute to this goal, the GoG has initiated two flagship projects: Planting for Food and Jobs (PFJ), focused on access to inputs, and Planting for Export & Rural Development (PERD), focused on the development of selected export tree crops to enhance the foreign exchange earning capacity of the Ghanaian economy.

Policy Lead (Environment)

Renewing the Centre is the UK-focused policy unit of the Policy Futures team at the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change. Our 13-strong team produces, commissions and curates high-quality empirical analysis with a view to developing a radical but practical policy platform to renew the progressive centre ground of politics. With a primary focus on the UK, our aim is to develop an exciting, positive agenda for change to improve people’s lives and strengthen liberal democracy against a rising tide of angry populism.

The UK government has legislated for a target of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 – the first major country to do so. But how can this be achieved, and how can we build and sustain political support for policy action over the long term?

Getting to net-zero will require profound shifts in our economy and way of life. Such a transformation will come with opportunities and threats. Depending on how it is handled, it could improve our quality of life and create new business and employment opportunities; or it could impose politically unsustainable economic and social costs and further fracture our already divided politics. It is therefore vital that policy design takes account of these opportunities and threats.

In addition, with the UK hosting the COP26 talks in 2021, there is an opportunity for a post-Brexit ‘Global Britain’ to show real international leadership in devising workable climate change policy.

These are among the questions that the Policy Lead on Environment and Sustainability will address.
