About Book

Book Description
The urban agriculture sector in West and Central Africa is growing rapidly, despite an unfavorable political and policy environment. This book describes the valuable contribution that urban agriculture is making to food security and urban sanitation in the cities of the region. It also presents a strategy for launching a multi-stakeholder network on urban agriculture, and does so with input and support from producers; NGOs; national, regional, and international research institutions; donors; and policymakers and government officials at both the municipal and national levels. This book includes chapters in both English and French. Each chapter is preceeded by an abstract in the alternative language.
