Abstract or Summary
  • The fishery sector plays multiple roles in the national economies of West and Central African countries, including contributions to economic growth, employment, exports and tax revenues. A high proportion of these benefits are generated by the small-scale sector and contribute in various ways to food security and poverty reduction - essential elements of global development strategies as expressed in the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The paper argues that because of this diversity of roles a _one-size-fits-all_ national policy will be inappropriate in most countries. There may be a need to set distinct policy goals and strategies for inland and marine fisheries, for example. In most cases, the current and potential role of small-scale fisheries in poverty reduction and food security is poorly recognized the sector consequently neglected in both fisheries and poverty reduction policies.
