URBAN growth in the West African coastal growth poles provides economies of scale and the urbanization process leads to agricultural transformation, especially in terms of agricultural intensification. In this context, horticulture is particularly well suited for an urban environment and for city supplies. Horticulture benefits from intensification techniques on small areas of land and it provides good revenues for small scale farming systems.
