Poverty reduction strategy papers and the fisheries sector: an opportunity forgone?
This article examines the extent to which the fisheries sector has been mainstreamed into the Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers (PRSPs) published by fifty nations by the end of 2003. Applying content analysis techniques we find that there is little overt relationship between the extent of such mainstreaming and the significance of the sector (as either a contributor to food security, a generator of foreign exchange, a provider of employment or as a refuge of the poor).
