This note is based on a research program carried out by AFD since 2014 to assess the role of food markets in African cities and to shift to a more holistic approach of “food systems”, considering many Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Based on case studies led in Rabat-Salé in Morocco, Niamey in Niger and Abidjan in Côte d’Ivoire, AFD makes eight proposals for a new approach, concentrated on three major questions: geographical and functional positioning within a distribution network, local economic development and sustainability, and governance of food systems.
