dc.description.abstract "This study examined measurements of poverty in small-scale fishing communities of Ghana using FGT techniques and the Sumaila Relative Poverty Indices. Findings show that poverty head-count index was between 35.5% and 50% using the Local Poverty line and up to 80% using the International Poverty line. In terms of vulnerability, irrespective of the main fishing activity, community (rural or urban) and habitat of fishery resources (freshwater or marine), fishers were facing identical sources of vulnerability. Marginalization indicators were relatively better in the urban fishing communities (90%) than in the rural fishing communities (50%-80%)." en_US
