About this book

The Tanzanian coastal areas are socially, nutritionally, economically and environmentally important, yet they are vulnerable to both over-exploitation and degradation of their habitats. This book demonstrates the extent which various socio-economic dimensions of rural coastal households influence livelihood pathways, production efficiency and attitudes towards conservation initiatives. It uses the data from two coastal villages and econometric methods as well as Stochastic Production Frontier techniques.

The book reveals that attention to differential patterns of rural coastal households presents more viable possibilities for coastal villages to have conservation-development policies/programs that lead to poverty reduction.


Introduction and Overview.- Costal Rural Households and Decision to Participate in Various Activities.- Small-scale Fishing Households and Technical Efficiency.- Households Attitudes Towards Marine Resource Conservation.- Conclusion.
