    Fiscal policy and the artisanal fisheries sector in Ghana and Senegal 1996
    Also available in:

    Deyelopment strategy during the 1960 and i 970s was based on the philosophy that developing countries lacked improved technology and capital for speeding up their development.' Industrialization was promoted in order to capitalize on the abundant fish resources. However, the anticipated expansion of the economy did not happen and the development approach shifted towards an integrated rural strategy where emphasis is put on the community as a whole to upgrade incomes and the quality of life thr ough technical assistance and the active participation of fisherfolk and the community. In this context, emphasis was initially placed on the Community Fishery Centre (CFC) concept as a means of promoting artisanal fishery development. But it became apparent that the presence of a complex of facilities and seivices tailored to meet local needs was no guarantee that the structures/facilities would be used or that development would occur. The active participation of fisherfolk and the mobilisa tion of local and community resources was imperative in order to assure sustainability of initiatives undertaken by development projects and/or the community.

    Report of the First Meeting of the IDAF Working Group on Costs and Earnings in Artisanal Fisheries in West Africa 1996
    Also available in:

    Governments in the region covered by the IDAF Programrne are increasingly giving priority to the development of artisanal fisheries because of the subsector's increasing role in providing much needed protein and employment opportunities. In their respective development policies there is emphasis on improving the socioeconomic condition of fisherfolk. In general the strategy has been interventions in improved fishing craft, fishing gear, outboard engines, and processing technologies documented in the mentioned region.In spite of the significant progress in production levels, development planners still lack information on the costs and earnings of the artisanal fisherfolk. This has deprived them of the means of adequately assessing the technologies to encourage and those to discourage. The situation has been exacerbated by the fishermen not keeping account of the cost and earning in their operations. An essential element for assessing private and social benefits has, therefore, been marg inalised in development planning and monitoring, in management policy formulation, in relevant sktor related studies, and in project evaluation. Hence the need for data collection on costs, earnings, and profitability of different fishing units with regard to the methods they apply in the subsector. To improve on the short and sporadic studies conducted in the region, the LDAF Programme invited national fisheries administrations and research institutions to collaborate with her to assess the c ost structure, the sharing system, and the profitability of artisanal fisheries operations for a year in ten of its twenty associated countries. The results of the study will be used as a comparative information working document in a workshop to be organised in November 1996. The invited institutions nominated economists or technologists with relevant experience to serve as Study Coordinators in their respective countries. To facilitate the exchange of information and experience these nominees now constitute a Working Group on Costs and Earnings on Artisanal Fisheries in West Africa. The first meeting of this Group was held in Dakar on the 12 and 13 June 1995.
