Family and commercial farming in the Niayes area of Senegal

Oussouby Touré and Sidy Mohamed Seck

Issue paper, 52 pages

This paper examines the impact of the promotion of agri-business on small holder farmers in the Niayes area of Senegal. The Niayes area was chosen because of the development of commercial farming in the region and because the expansion of peri-urban areas has created growing markets for agricultural produce. This work is part of IIED’s programme on transformations in West African agriculture and the role of family farms which aims to feed into the development of agricultural policy.
