Who we are
Established in February 2013 but registered in November, 2015, Research Desk Consulting Ltd (RDC) is a private research consulting organisation operating in Ghana. RDC specialises in Agribusiness Development and Management, Agripreneurial Skills Development, Project Monitoring and Evaluation, Environmental and Economic Impact Assessment, Research Data Management, Analysis and Visualisation, Agricultural Value Chain Analysis and Development, Greenhouse and Aquaponic Development and Training, Waste Management and as well as Smallholder Farmers’ Capacity Building and Customised Training for FBOs. RDC believes that inclusive socio-economic development, and prosperity for all people can be achieved through research and private participation in technology uptake. Agribusiness holds key to Africa’s future and development. Several research outputs and findings with huge potential are left on shelves of institutions without reaching down to the smallholder farmer to influence his/her farming practices. The minute fraction of these evidenced-based research implemented are dominated by government-sponsored national research institutes (NARs) who lacks the ability to commercialise these innovations. Thus, a private led-research with full participation of allied businesses will stir investment and drive agribusiness and agripreneurship development. Thus, a knowledge-based approach to products development is particularly imperative in the context of rapidly evolving realities and permanently fluctuating climates within the changing business environment, evolving consumer culture and lifestyle and complex service provisioning.
