Environmental degradation in Ghana's coastal zone has been a source of concern to policymakers for years. Stakeholders' participation is evolving worldwide as a mechanism to address the issue of environmental degradation. Hence there have been calls to take into consideration the environmental attitudes and values of local users in the management of coastal natural resources in Ghana. This book highlights the environmental attitudes and values women and their significance in coastal natural resource management (NRM). Using empirical data from two Ghanaian coastal communities, it also investigates poverty-natural resource linkages and how this knowledge can be used to improve coastal NRM. The fact that the management of resources cannot exist outside of people and social systems, nor will it succeed unless they are linked to the welfare of resource users is emphasized. This book thus increases understanding of the relevance of integrating environmental issues into development plans and policies especially in developing countries.
