Photo of the week May 22nd, 2013

As the farming season gets under-way, we continue to notice from the air the lack of coordinated efforts in land use.  All over the country we see 'strip farming' and often see the same tractor returning a few days apart to plough adjacent lands.  The 'strip and plot' activities are often counter-productive and more costly than a unified, team effort to clear, plough, plant and harvest crops.  Sadly, such cooperation is often lacking, and the end result is a lower return on investment than would be achieved by working together for a common goal.  This same challenges are encountered in offices, where duplication of efforts occur through lack of collaboration and cooperation - and even in aspects related to National Development.  Team work, cooperation, collaboration and sharing of good practice has transformed agriculture and industry in other parts of the world - hopefully we will start to see more positive evidence of the same in the coming years as we fly over the wonderful landscapes of Ghana.  Photo courtesy of Medicine on the Move
