Identification of banana production systems in urban and peri-urban agriculture in Yaoundé

Lemeilleur S., Temple L., Kwa M.. 2003. Infomusa (English ed.), 12 (1) : p. 13-16.

Urban development is one of the main features of socioeconomic change familiar to developing countries: it presents the problem of increasing the food supply to respond to the food requirements of the urban consumers (Dury et al. 1999). Although peri-urban agriculture provides favourable conditions for the intensification of production systems, there is little work on the subject which applies particularly to banana. We propose to do this for the peri-urban agriculture of Yaoundé (1.4 million inhabitants), the capital of Cameroon, situated in the Central province.
