By Marc Wegerif. PhD Candidate, Rural Sociology Group Wageningen University, carrying out research on food provisioning in Dar es Salaam.
I am happy to share a recently published paper: “Exploring Sustainable Urban Food Provisioning: The Case of Eggs in Dar es Salaam” Sustainability 2014, 6(6), 3747-3779; doi:10.3390/su6063747.
The paper examines food provisioning in Dar es Salaam through a focus on the egg trade and finds that there are existing, non-corporate, patterns of food provisioning that can sustainably meet the needs of eaters in this city of over 4million people. Below I explain why this is important.
