An improved maize marketing system for Zimbabwe
The food and agricultural problems of sub-Saharan Africa are well documented (Eicher, 1982; UDSA, 1981; World Bank- 19 ). If food security is defined as the ability of food deficit countries, regions or households to meet target consumption levels on a regular annual basis, then it is apparent that issues, of food security will increasingly dominate the.policy agenda in sub-Saharan Africa for the remainder of the century. Lele and Candler (1981) observe that the underlying assumptions for conventional food security analysis do not apply in subSaharan Africa. Typically there is both a traditional and a large-scale food production sector. (1.225Mb)
