THE NETWORK, ITS AIMS AND OBJECTIVES

This network has been established as an offshoot of a DFID-funded research project

“BUILDING A FOOD MARKETING POLICY EVIDENCE BASE IN NIGERIA”


The project runs from July 2004 to November 2005 and aims to help build an evidence base regarding urban market institutions and pro-poor growth in the Nigerian food sector, using a networked research approach. The following three core topics are prioritised in this research:


1. Understanding transport markets: efficiency of transport markets and means to improved market access.
2. Understanding urban food markets: how can such markets best supply the urban poor consumer with good quality food at affordable prices.
3. Understanding the linkages between different markets – transport markets, credit markets, labour markets, food markets - and making linkages in these markets across the formal and informal sectors.


The network has been established as a means of facilitating communication among researchers working on this networked study and others with an interest in Nigerian market access issues. We aim to continue this network beyond the life of the project in order to disseminate project information and related material on formal and informal institutions which currently shape Nigerian marketing.

If you would like further information on the project please contact Gina Porter: r.e.porter@durham.ac.uk
