Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA) of the Densu Estuary Oyster Harvesting, Bortianor/Tsokomey, Greater Accra Region, Ghana
This report is a synthesis of the results of a Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA) commissioned by the Sustainable Fisheries Management Project (SFMP), in partnership with Development Action Association (DAA) and the women fisherfolk at Tsokomey in the Bortianor municipality of the Greater Accra Region. The purpose of the PRA was to assess prospects for development of a community-based management plan for oyster harvesting as a sustainable livelihood and food security venture in the Densu River estuary. The Densu Delta was designated as a RAMSAR site in 1992, recognizing it as a protected wetland of international importance under the International Convention on Wetlands. A management plan for the Delta was developed in 1999 but did not make reference to oyster harvesting activities.
