URBAN AND PERI URBAN HORTICULTURE AND THE CAPABILITY APPROACH THE CASE OF THE SOUTH-WEST PROVINCE OF CAMEROON

Abstract : This paper uses the capability approach to analyse the impact of urban and peri urban horticulture on development in Africa. Is horticulture, considered as an innovation, able to improve the capabilities of people? This paper states that it is not the practice of horticulture which increases the capabilities of farmers but the level of capabilities that increases the chances of adopting horticulture. In order to answer the above question we have attempted to understand the context in which the agricultural sector and the farmers evolve in Africa, characterized by the urban transition towards a majority of urban population and the rise of nonfarm incomes. It appeared important to understand the underlying prerequisites for horticultural practices, that is, expensive agrochemical inputs and credit requirements.
