  • The effect of household income on child welfare clinic attendance in Ghana
    • Authors: Alessandra Lardo, Daniele Marandola, Alberto Manzari
      Pages: 1 - 17
      Abstract: This paper examines the effect of household income on child welfare clinic attendance in Ghana using the Ghana Living Standards Survey round six (GLSS 6) data. In order to choose the model that best fits the data, the corrected versions of the Vuong test were used and the ZIP model was chosen over the PRM. The paper finds evidence that other things being equal, a child in a household that gets a GH¢1 increase in income is 0.023 more likely to be sent for child welfare clinic service and this will in turn, lead to an improvement in the child's health. It is recommended that the government should provide mobile child welfare clinics around the country and also design cash transfer policies in order to provide financial support for poor caregivers to be able to attend child welfare clinics regularly.

  • Manufacturing in Africa: an example from Zambia
    • Authors: Richard Grabowski, Sharmistha Self
      Pages: 18 - 34
      Abstract: Structural change in the development process usually involves the decline of agriculture and the rise of manufacturing. Structural change in Sub-Saharan Africa (and some other developing countries) has altered with agriculture declining as a share of GDP and total employment, but manufacturing as a share actually declining or remaining stagnant. It is argued in this paper that this is at least partly the result of liberalising reforms beginning in the late 1980s and partly the result of a significant dependence on a natural resource, in this case copper. However, it is further hypothesised in this paper that growth in agricultural productivity is critical to the development of manufacturing. Specifically, growth in this sector's productivity restrains the cost of agricultural goods and thus allows the manufacturing sector to expand. If agricultural productivity lags relative to manufacturing productivity rising relative agricultural costs make it extremely difficult for manufacturing to expand. These ideas are illustrated by examining the experience of Zambia.

  • Testing the environmental Kuznets curve in selected West African
           countries: empirical evidence estimation
    • Authors: Ebrima K. Ceesay, Christopher Belford, Momodou Mustapha Fanneh, Alpha Kargbo, Sidat Yaffa
      Pages: 35 - 50
      Abstract: Environmental economics studied has become increasingly most popular in local and international community. In this paper, we empirically tested the environmental Kuznets curve hypothesis by analysis the relationship between growth of environmental quality and growth of per capita income. The panel estimation such as fixed effect and random effect were applied. From the results, the fixed effect model for growth for CO<SUB align=right>2 revealed that growth for population density, growth of per capita income, growth of per capita income squared, growth of trade openness, growth of exchange rate, and growth of agriculture valued added were statistically significant. The results further indicated that growth of trade openness lead to an increases in growth of environmental quality. The growth of population density has positive and significant effects on the growth rate of environmental quality and has the a-priori expectation in our model.

      Abstract: Environmental economics studied has become increasingly most popular in local and international community. In this paper, we empirically tested the environmental Kuznets curve hypothesis by analysis the relationship between growth of environmental quality and growth of per capita income. The panel estimation such as fixed effect and random effect were applied. From the results, the fixed effect model for growth for CO<SUB align=right>2 revealed that growth for population density, growth of per capita income, growth of per capita income squared, growth of trade openness, growth of exchange rate, and growth of agriculture valued added were statistically significant. The results further indicated that growth of trade openness lead to an increases in growth of environmental quality. The growth of population density has positive and significant effects on the growth rate of environmental quality and has the a-priori expectation in our model.

  • Chinese businesses and transnational knowledge transfer under constrained
           environment: results from the field in Ghana
    • Authors: Thomas Ameyaw-Brobbey, Urmi Gupta
      Pages: 51 - 73
      Abstract: China's recent economic success has deepened its engagement with Africa offering a platform for its experience of development and achievement to be transferred to or copied by Africans. What exactly are Chinese businesses teaching Ghanaian workers? What constraints impede the knowledge transfer and the learning process? This article's findings are based primarily on the results of a field study conducted in Ghana between March and July 2019 on 26 Chinese firms, involving 360 Ghanaian workers. It employed a mixed research method of questionnaires and informal interviews to collect data. Using content analysis and IBM SPSS Statistics Version 23, the study found that although grievances exist on salary, job security, safety concerns and others, Ghanaian workers generally acknowledge significant transfer and knowledge learning from Chinese firms and employers which they believe would not only enhance their personal development but a source of impetus for Ghana's development.

  • Child's well-being and parents' employment status in Nigeria
    • Authors: Thomas Ameyaw-Brobbey, Urmi Gupta
      Pages: 74 - 89
      Abstract: The sustainable development goals have been shown to be interdependent. Infants and children are important target groups for enhancing the future prospects of any society through improved welfare. It is noted that child's development within the home could be hampered when the family is poor and devoid of decent employment, so employed parents' income is an important mean to secure the child's well-being. However, the effects of parents' work on the child have been found to be ambiguous. The current study examined the relationship between the child's well-being and parents' employment status in Nigeria with the use of multiple regression technique. The results suggest that employment of each of the parents dampened the child's health, while the earnings from their wages and salary enhanced the child's well-being. To address the parents' work and childcare conflicts and maximise the benefits of the parents' earning, government should generate better quality jobs, proffer family-friendly policies which are adequate and capable of helping women to achieve work-family balance, and also encourage both public and private employers of labour to do so.
