Investigations on Building a Food Marketing Policy Evidence Base in Nigeria

A research project of the Department of Anthropology, part of the Anthropology in Development and Anthropology in Development research groups.


This project aims to contribute to the required evidence base concerning pro-poor growth in the Nigerian food sector. The following three core topics will be prioritised in a study in 6 regions of Nigeria using a networked research approach involving 15 Nigerian academics:

  • Understanding transport markets: efficiency of transport markets and means to improved market access.
  • Understanding urban food markets: how can such markets best supply the urban poor consumer with good quality food at affordable prices.
  • Understanding the linkages between different markets transport markets, credit markets, labour markets, food markets - and making linkages in these markets across the formal and informal sectors.
