Understanding access to markets and the institutions of the food sector is a major challenge for pro-poor growth. Pro-poor growth in the food sector will not only raise incomes (for poor producers, poor traders and the poor who operate in related sectors, notably transport), but will also reduce the cost of food for poor
consumers. It will thus reduce the vulnerability of the poor in general. This report presents results of a short programme on access to different types of market (principally food and transport) and the linkages between markets (food,transport, credit etc.) conducted by 15 researchers across Nigeria’s major regions, using an innovative networked research approach. The study
incorporates syntheses of previous studies with new field research. It aims to make a significant contribution to building a food marketing policy evidence base
across Nigeria.
