Inland valleys constitute an important but underutilized land type for food production in West Africa. In southern Benin, production in these valleys is limited by lack of appropriate water management and limited access to input and output markets. This lack of appropriate water management has been exacerbated by recent climate change manifested through more frequent floods and below average rainfall years that increase the frequency of crop failure that in turn diminishes the contribution of inland valleys to food security in West Africa and Benin in particular.
