Dear All,
I hope this information finds all of you well? This is a quick monthly update for November 2020 from VIFAA on progress we are making towards the development of the Ghana Fertilizer dashboard:

Prototype Development 

The DG team is working towards finalizing the Ghana technical requirements (guidance document for the Ghana Dashboard Development).  Of the 5 indicators (fertilizer imports, apparent consumption, national average fertilizer consumption, international fertilizer prices, retail prices, and a directory of fertilizer blending plants), only the fertilizer imports indicator is yet to be finalized. This will be finalized before the end of November. 

Cleaning of Ghana Fertilizer Datasets

The focus has been on further review of data for two indicators as follows; 
  • Retail price; DG completed the cleaning of the remaining years (2017 to 2020) of retail prices (Commercial and Subsidized). This completed the cleaning of all retail price data for Ghana (2010 to 2020). The upload of this data into the DG Server is in progress. 
  • Fertilizer Import; the team has completed the cleaning of fertilizer imports data for the period 2010 to 2019 and uploaded data for 2010 to 2012 into the DG server.. Outstanding to be uploaded is cleaned data for 2013 to 2019.  The DG team will focus on uploading the remaining data into the DG Server in the coming month.
  • Fertilizer Plant Directory; completed the upload of information of all the ten fertilizer blending plants into the DG server.
DG is open for questions and comments. 

Kind regards,
