Abstract: Policies to promote demand-driven smallholder agriculture and improved urban food marketing system performance in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) need to be informed by careful food demand analysis, especially given the rapid rate of urbanization in many SSA countries. Governments, donors, and other policymakers require an up-to-date understanding of urban consumption patterns because these are among the main drivers of many of the opportunities available to small-scale farmers and because such information can help identify key leverage points to improve urban marketing system performance. It is also important to understand better the extent of, and constraints to, urban agriculture for household consumption as well as for cash income generation.
