Atlas of West African urban food systems

This atlas, with examples from Ghana and Burkina Faso, summarises recent interdisciplinary research to address different components of West African urban food systems, including urban and peri-urban agriculture. It draws on the results of several major collaborative research projects and stakeholder consultations conducted in West Africa over the past two decades, and in particular on the BMBF/BMZ funded UrbanFoodPlus project in Ghana and Burkina Faso. The project involved several German and African universities, the International Water Management Institute, the World Vegetable Center, RUAF and other partners.
