Abstract


This paper investigate and identifies the probable supply chain related risks in Ghana agricultural supply chain and further seeks the severity of these risks based on engineering judgments and historical records. In addition, this paper probes into participants’ ability level to manage/control the identified risk. The results indicate that, not all global supply chain related risks transpire in Ghana agricultural supply chain. While some risks such as market related risks are inevitable in the supply chain, others such as political related risk and some element of weather related risks do not exits and seldom occur in agricultural supply chain in Ghana respectively. Again, even though some risks are probable, their severity is minimal and at some point no severity at all. This research also indicates that participant of agricultural supply chain in Ghana have different abilities in managing/controlling risk in different risk in the chain. While there are no or weak abilities to manage/control financial related risks, the participant effectively manage/control risk that are from operational and managerial related.
