How a stakeholders’ committee can make a difference in the way of doing research?

Food systems

This story of change highlights how a committee of stakeholders can change and make the way of doing research successful. Our project is about enhancing urban food security through the development of allotment gardens in and around the cities of Benin. An allotment garden is a form of urban agriculture where a plot of land is allocated to a group of individuals and families – usually poor – to produce their own food. To achieve the objective of the project, we planned to develop two allotment gardens in two cities – Cotonou and Porto-Novo – in Benin.
