Assessing the influence of livelihood assets on livelihood strategies and household food security among smallholder maize farmers the case of Bole district of Ghana

Samenvatting

The livelihood strategies of farm households depend on the conditions of their assets and farm households cope with risk and shocks through portfolios consisting of different types of assets. Thus discussing the influence assets have on livelihood strategies of farm households helps in understanding their livelihood conditions and in formulating appropriate livelihoods improvement policies. In this study, the influence of farm household livelihood assets on livelihood strategies was first theoretically analyzed, then a qualitative study on livelihood assets available to these households, the influence of these assets on livelihood strategies, the influence of the strategies on food access and availability and then the challenges these households face was conducted. These were analyzed by first transcribing and reading to identify meanings, then coded systematically. Once all the meanings were identified, themes and statements were generated. Evaluation of each meaning was done to ensure that the theme accurately and adequately captured its meaning and addressed the research problem.
