Abstract:This publication derives from two international workshops (October 2000 and January 2002, Groningen, The Netherlands) centring on the research activities of the Groningen Centre for Development Studies theme group on food security and food markets. Three papers are summaries of PhD research findings: Boubiť Bassolet on the liberalization of the cereals market in Burkina Faso (paper in French), Arno Maatman on the analysis of farming systems in the northwestern region of Burkina Faso with a view to their sustainable intensification through low-cost technologies, and Arjan Ruijs on the effect of improvements in infrastructure (roads and communication), market information services and credit facilities on cereal prices and cereal trade in Burkina Faso. The publication also includes papers on the interrelationship between poverty and malnutrition in sub-Saharan Africa (Christian Morrisson, Erik Thorbecke, H. Guilmeau and C. Linskens), agricultural development and poverty reduction in the Sahel (John H. Sanders), the importance of public investments and institutions for the functioning of food markets in developing countries (Peter Hazell and Shenggen Fan), and a plea for social capital and a rigorous antitrust policy in the liberalization of food markets in Benin (Clemens Lutz).
