Abstract : Growing urban demand for food – which now constitutes about 60–70 per cent of food consumption in Asia and more than half in Africa – is met largely by trade. This paper reviews evidence for what this trade means for rural areas, and for successful rural economic transformation. It also reviews trade and other policy options for generating a stronger 'win' between urban consumption and rural transformation. (Résumé d'auteur)
