Content: The research focuses on carbon and nutrient, fluxes and the role of biochar in the intensive urban and peri-urban systems of two West African cities. The first chapter introduces the thesis and gives a background of the entire Ph.D. research as well as the research objectives and hypotheses addressed in the study. Chapters 2, 3, and 4
contain research results. Chapter 5 contains a general discussion where I have addressed methodological issues as well as the experimental design, included are further comments on the management practices of Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso) andTamale (northern Ghana) and also the potential of biochar in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). This thesis ends with conclusions and recommendations that may be useful in the future to researchers and to stakeholders of the agro-industry in SSA.
