Introduction: Urban and Peri-urban Agriculture (UPA) is observed in varying degrees in both developing and developed countries worldwide. Its contribution to urban food security and poverty alleviation has recently become a subject of attention for policy makers. UPA appears to expand during economic crises, such as those induced by armed conflicts and structural adjustment, highlighting its use as a coping mechanism. UPA contributes to food availability in cities and therefore to the diet of urban consumers. It also generates income for urban households involved in production, processing, marketing and distribution of these foods, allowing them to buy food and face other expenses, therefore contributing to household food security and nutrition. On the other hand, negative health impacts ? in particular linked to poor food quality - may have a detrimental effect on nutrition.
