This is a range of maps of accessibility to market centers of varying sizes in Africa.
HarvestChoice uses a mix of third party and its own metrics of market access that reflect the distance, time or travel cost between farm households and market or service locations. We have generated maps and tables of the accessibility of rural populations across all lands and in rainfed cropland areas of Africa to market/service locations (considered here only as human settlements) of different size (populations of >20K, >50K, >100K, >250K, >500K). Travel time to market centers is divided into four classes: High: 0-2 hours, Medium: 2-4 hours, Low: 4-8 hours & Remote: >8 hours.
