520    This is the first research report to examine the nature 
       and drivers of food insecurity in the northern Namibian 
       towns of Oshakati, Ongwediva, and Ondangwa. As well as 
       forming part of a new body of research on secondary 
       urbanization and food security in Africa, the report makes
       systematic comparisons between the food security situation
       in this urban corridor and the much larger capital city of
       Windhoek. A major characteristic of urbanization in 
       Namibia is the perpetuation of rural-urban linkages 
       through informal rural-to-urban food remittances. This 
       survey found that 55% of households in the three towns 
       receive food from relatives in rural areas. Urban 
       households also farm in nearby rural areas and incorporate
       that agricultural produce into their diets. The survey 
       showed that over 90% of households in the three towns 
       patronize supermarkets, which is a figure far higher than 
       for any other food source. Overall, food security is 
       better in Namibia's northern towns than in Windhoek, where
       levels of food insecurity are particularly high. However, 
       just because the food insecurity situation is less 
       critical in the north, the majority of households in the 
       urban corridor are not food secure. Like Windhoek, these 
       towns also have considerable income and food security 
       inequality, with households in the informal settlements at
       greatest risk of chronic food insecurity
