Environmental Degradation and Intrahousehold Labour Time Allocations in Rural South Pare Highlands, Tanzania
We assess the influence of environmental degradation on intrahousehold labour time allocations in rural south Pare, Tanzania. We distinguished three types of areas, namely, severely degraded, medium degraded and non-degraded environmental conditions. The unit of analysis is the household composed of both parents and at least one schoolchild. The results, among others, show that environmental products collection and/or grazing time by the household members is, almost in all groups and in accordance to gender-biased activity, significantly influenced by the environmental conditions.
