CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Conflict and political instability have weakened Guinea-Bissau's productive
infrastructure considerably during the past three decades. This situation
contributes to an increase in the degree of vulnerability of the population,
especially in rural areas where most economic activities continue to take
place. As growth has been weak, poverty levels remain high. This book provides
a collection of papers on conflict, livelihoods, and poverty in Guinea-Bissau
based on both the nationally representative 2002 household survey and a small
scale survey with both quantitative and qualitative components implemented in
2004. The chapters deal with growth and poverty, institutions and social
networks, the determinants of poverty, the means of livelihoods of the
population, and finally cashew production and taxation.
