    The growth of the urban market in Africa leads to a multi-functional outer-urban agriculture and to a specialization on the fresh and perishable products. From the analysis chart which proposes the localized production systems, we try to understand how the structural characteristics and the functioning of the slums agriculture create opportunities and activate strategic resources. The results show how the geographical proximity bound to the city can facilitate the organizational and technical innovation.
