This research is part of a larger World Bank programme that aims to fill knowledge gaps on trade in food staples in the West African region. This research aims to support the identification of research priorities for the programme moving forward.

The review is desk-based, relying on available literature, including peer-reviewed articles and volumes, as well as consultancy reports. Where possible, it aims to analyse trade in food staples through the lens of the commodity value chain, from inputs to final products.
