The effects of growing coffee, cocoa and oil palms on the incomes and nutrition of small peasant households in southern Sierra Leone

The effects of growing coffee, cocoa and oil palms on the incomes and nutrition of small peasant households in southern Sierra Leone

Studien zur Integrierten Landlichen Entwicklung ( 34): 224pp.

The case study carried out in the region of the Bo-Pujehun rural development project in Sierra Leone showed that families growing permanent crops had better education than those relying solely on subsistence crops. The adoption of this type of crop led to a reduction in the area devoted to food crops and the diversion of male labour to the permanent crops. Lack of profit in the first 5 to 7 years of the new crops was compensated by non-farm employment.
