Nutrient recycling from organic waste for urban and peri-urban agriculture in West Africa: really a win-win situation?



Nutrient recycling from organic waste for urban and peri-urban agriculture in West Africa: really a win-win situation?



Emerging issues along urban/rural interfaces: linking science and society Conference Proceedings, Hilton Atlanta, Atlanta, Georgia, USA, 13-16 March 2005: 212-217



The major challenge of urbanization to decision makers is the provision of sufficient food for the emerging mega-cities and appropriate urban sanitation management. This paper focuses on the results of a project carried out by International Water Management Institute (IWMI) in three major cities of Ghana (Accra, Kumasi and Tamale).
