In the last two episodes, we looked at models and policy frameworks for supply chains. Going forward we will dive into different supply chains in different regions. Today, we look at food supply chains in Africa. Food plays - like everywhere else on this planet - a big role on the African continent. Partly because it's still scarce in many places. Hunger is still the biggest health risk in Africa. But partly also because the middle class is growing rapidly and people are eating more and more diversified.

Listen to moderator Nicolas Martin and our guest Dr. Saweda Onipede Liverpool Tasie from the Michigan State University in the US. There she is an Associate Professor at the Department of Agricultural, Food and Resource Economics and an expert on development policies.
