This brief provides an overview of a unique data set that begins to systematically examine the regional supply chain in Lilongwe, Malawi. Sometimes referred to as ‘informal’ or ‘traditional,’ the regional food sector is critical to rural and urban food security and is a common and important source of income for men and women along the value chain and throughout the country. It will remain important to urban/rural food security and livelihood for decades.
