Summary Annotation Settlement dynamics have been reshaping West Africa's social and economic geography. These spatial transformations - high urbanisation and economic concentration - favour the development of market-oriented agriculture. With the population of West Africa set to double by 2050, agricultural production systems will undergo far-reaching transformations. To support these transformations, policies need to be spatially targeted, improve availability of market information and broaden the field of food security to policy domains beyond agriculture. They need to rely on homogeneous and reliable data - not available at present - particularly for key variables such as non-agricultural and agricultural population, marketed production and regional trade.
