Consuming Urban Poverty Project


About the Project


The Consuming Urban Poverty Project is a three-year research project about governing food systems to alleviate poverty in secondary cities in Africa. The work is funded by the UK Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the UK Department for International Development (DfID). The cities are Kitwe (Zambia), Kisumu (Kenya) and Epworth (Zimbabwe). The Project conducted household and food vendor surveys in these cities to examine the connections between poverty, governance, urban space and food.
