Improving market institutions and urban food supplies for the urban poor: a comparative study of Nigeria and Zambia: scoping phase.

Abstract

To make markets work for the poor requires greater understanding of existing market systems. The research problem addressed in this scoping project is the lack of specific knowledge and understanding of formal and informal market institutions in urban Africa and their impact on urban food systems. It examines the systems which govern the marketing opportunities for informal urban and peri-urban cultivators, and for rural producers, in our two study countries, Nigeria and Zambia and it explores the mechanisms of marketing food in urban areas.
