Agri-chains (or filières) and food and nutrition security: two independent concepts

Dury S.. 2017. In : Biénabe Estelle (ed.), Rival Alain (ed.), Loeillet Denis (ed.). Sustainable development and tropical agri-chains. Dordrecht : Springer, p. 83-89.

Agricultural production and food security are now systematically linked in the narratives. And yet, in the literature, the nature of their linkages remains unclear. Agri-chains can represent one way of conceptualizing the pathways between production and consumption and be designed to have beneficial effects on food and nutrition security. Identifying several impact pathways and questions to be asked to analyze the effects on nutrition of an intervention in agriculture, this chapter proposes some approaches to specialists and proponents of agri-chains to question and assess the effects of agri-chain expansion on food and nutrition security.
