In URBANE we design real-world case studies that cover different agroecological zones focused on Western Africa.
The study will take place in the Tropical Savanna and Forest Agroecological Zones of western Nigeria, essentially in peri-urban towns surrounding Lagos Metropolis. The peri-urban areas that surround Lagos support huge volumes of agricultural activities that target Lagos as their main market.
Morocco strives to create the bases of modern agriculture through national strategies. Initiatives to promote agroecological agriculture are emerging close to the main Moroccan metropolises. Initially individual and inspired by practices from the North, these initiatives attempt to structure themselves thanks to growing customer demand, without real support from the authorities.
The study will be located in the peri urban area zone of St Louis. A town located in the north of Senegal, at the border with Mauritania, near the Senegal river. The goal is to transform a complex difficult environment into a positive one, following a one health approach, restoring biodiversity & combating poverty.
Study sites will be located in coastal savannah and forest agro-ecozones within the Greater Accra region and Eastern region of Ghana. In each of these ecozones, we will focus on selected communities where intensive and extensive pig farming occur within peri-urban centres.
The case study will be located in a peri-urban zone close to the largest agglomeration of Cotonou.
This study will be developed in the peri-urban centres of the Hauts Bassins and Centre regions. These densely populated cities expose the population to health problems related to the use of pesticides
