Résumé
The (peri-) urban demand for food of animal origin is increasing in sub-Saharan Africa as a result of the rapidly growing population and urbanisation. Livestock production in the vicinity of West African cities is well established but currently undergoes changes triggered by key transforming factors such as access to resources, production management related to famers’ knowledge or know-how, increasing demand for livestock and/or animal products, policies and the legal framework in which livestock production systems operate. Urbanisation and population growth have made (peri-) urban agriculture increasingly diversified such that several livestock production systems operate in parallel in West African cities, with different degree of specialisation, intensification, and integration with crop farming. Thus determinants of resource use and use efficiency vary within and acrosscities and are impacting on farm performances and profitability. Therefore attempts to understand those key determinants in order to improve production practices and performances are highly relevant in the context of increasing resource scarcity. For this study, 181 (peri-) urban commercial livestock keeping households in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, were interviewed using a semi-structured questionnaire.
