This report is based on the fieldwork undertaken in Kisumu in May 2016. The report feeds into the overall Consuming Urban Poverty (CUP) study that aims at exploring food systems in secondary cities and determine how these food systems function. Specifically, the overall study aims to: understand how their major configurations (formal vs. informal) differ in terms of environmental and social externalities; identify the stages within the food systems with significant environmental and social impacts (also referred to as hotspots), and thereby suggest concerns that should be addressed in food systems governance; describe the environmental and social externalities along the food supply chain for each case study city, and where possible, to quantity these externalities. To achieve the aim of the study, the fieldwork was undertaken to observe and highlight issues along the food value chain of key food items. This was supplemented by published literature.
