◆Speaker: Dr. Godfrey Hampwaye (Visiting Professor, African Studies Center - TUFS / Senior Lecturer, University of Zambia)
◆Title: Significance, and Institutional Support to Urban and Peri-Urban Agriculture in Africa: Evidence from Zambia
◆Abstract: Urban and Peri-Urban Agriculture (UPA) has a long history in Africa. It predates the independence of most African countries. Given the social and economic conditions in many African cities, UPA has become one of the anti-poverty tools for the urban poor. However, this activity has not been receiving the required support from, especially government institutions; both at local and central government levels. This presentation therefore delves into the importance and constraints of UPA in four Zambian cities of Kabwe, Kitwe, Lusaka and Ndola considering the economic restructuring the country underwent in the 1990s.
