What are the key factors of food insecurity among Senegalese landowners ?
During 2008, many sub-saharan african economies have been obliged to suspended their imports tariffs to the magnitude of the food crisis. Frequent riots experienced in several cities have then raised the deep issue of food security. The purpose of this paper is to identify for the case of Senegal the major causes of food insecurity among rural households which are more affected, in particular farmers. A binomial logit model based on the Senegalese household data (Esam I) is used to identify the most influential probable causes of food insecurity among landowners.
