Abstract

The goal of this paper is to provide evidence of shifts in food consumption patterns in the ECOWAS countries of West Africa from 1980 through 2009.1 In particular, the analysis is intended to identify major contributors to diets, changes in the levels as well as in the composition of food supply at the country-level, and to enhance understanding of the food supply situation within the ECOWAS zone using national-level FAOSTAT food balance sheet data from 1980-2009. The paper provides detailed displays of per capita food availability for each of the 15 countries, which will serve as the basis for more detailed quantitative and qualitative analysis in subsequent reports.
