Rapid urbanization in many Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) countries is an indicator of the ever-growing pace of structural transformation. Increasing urban population requires more services, the most basic being food. This increasing demand has led to recognition of the contribution of urban and peri-urban agriculture to providing food security, employment and income generation as well as productive management of idle or under-utilized resources. Statistics from the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) indicate that approximately 800 million people are engaged in urban agriculture worldwide with the majority in Asian cities. Of these, 200 million are considered to be market-oriented producers, employing 150 million people full time (Smit et al. 1997).
