  • Households’ Consumption of Electrical and Electronic Equipment and
           Environmental Implication in Ota, Nigeria
    • Authors: Nathaniel Oluwaseun Ogunseye
      Abstract: The generation of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) has been attributed to unprecedented consumption of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) globally. Hence, the issue of consumption and management of the associated WEEE warrant investigation. This study seeks to provide insight into households’ consumption of EEE in Ota, Nigeria. Multistage sampling technique was used to purposely administer questionnaire on 111 households’ heads/representatives in random manner. Data collected were analysed using both descriptive and inferential statistics. The findings indicated that rate in EEE consumption pattern reflects the appliances’ importance to the households. Also, signicant proportion of the households (81.5%) consumed new EEE, implying new EEE is preferred to purchase of used EEE. Decision to acquire new EEE is based on convenience rather than increased income or advertising as reported by 58%. Households’ sale of old EEE appears to suggest reuse or recycling. However, 20.3% of households threw away old EEE. The Chi-Square Tests revealed that there is statistical relationship between respondents’ income and preference to buy, repair or service EEE. This study recommends a holistic approach to research on EEE consumption, review of extant regulations on WEEE management and stakeholders’ engagement for inclusive WEEE management.Keywords: Consumption, Electrical and Electronic Equipment, Households, Management, Ota – Nigeria, Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment

  • Local Actors’ Interest and Negotiation Strategies for Benets in
           Ghana’s Oil and Gas Sector
    • Authors: Asaah Sumaila Mohammed
      Abstract: Since Ghana’s oil discovery in 2007, the question of how the resource will benet aected communities and who holds the responsibly is still a subject of debate. Will the benets be negotiated by local actors or will benets ow automatically from the state and oil companies' Guided by the actor-oriented theoretical foundation, the paper qualitatively examines how dierent actors have emerged in the Western Region of Ghana to negotiate for benets from the oil nd. Two qualitative case studies were conducted on sher folks and youth groups to examine the processes, dynamics and outcomes of their negotiations. The results show that disenfranchised youth and sher folks, who feel dispossessed of their livelihood, have resorted to social mobilisation and contentious political bargaining strategies to negotiate for their benefits and to channel their grievances. Alternative livelihoods, jobs for locals and improvement in social infrastructural development are the primary requests of the local actors. The paper concludes that local actors’ interests are varied and negotiations are largely unregulated. Local actors constantly accuse oil companies for not prioritising their needs. State coherent policies and structures to mediate the negotiation processes between local actors, companies and the state are therefore recommended to avoid violent conicts.Keywords: Local Actors, Negotiation, Local Benets, Oil and Gas, Ghana

  • South African Adults at Risk of Overweight and Obesity: an Assessment of
           the Association of Food Choices and Body Mass Index in Khayelitsha and
           Mitchells Plain
    • Authors: Mulugeta F. Dinbabo, Michael Nguatem Belebema, Clement Mensah
      Abstract: South Africa is experiencing a rapid increase in its urban townships population as well as increase in overweight and obesity, especially amongst adult women. This study investigates on the association of Body Mass Index and food choices in two urban townships – Khayelitsha and Mitchells Plain in Cape Town. About 48 individuals from 5 households were interviewed and anthropometric data drawn from the population. Principal component analysis was conducted on food choices using a 4-hour recall. Average Dietary Diversity Score (DDS) was .88 which was less than the South African average. Seven food patterns were identied and contribute 8% of the variations. The results show that about % of adults’ sampled were overweight and obese at BMI> 5kg/m . DDS was signicantly low for most individuals (p=.) despite % of food prepared at home. The study concludes that inconsistent and distorted dietary patterns and socioeconomic status aected access to food choices that is evidence of balanced diet, and thereby creating an avenue for the risk of overweight and obesity. Consumer awareness programmes that focus on reducing the risk of obesity needs to be put in place in poor communities to address the problem and risk of poor food choice and obesity.Keywords: South Africa, Food, Obesity, Overweight and Poverty

  • Travel Philanthropy in the LarabangaMognori Tourist Enclave in Northern
           Ghana
    • Authors: Conrad-J.Wuleka Kuuder, Whitney Sunkwah Yeboah, Evelyn K. Yirbekyaa, Getrude Poku, Catherine Fosulade Arowosafe, Chrysogonus Anab, Ernest Bagson
      Abstract: Travel philanthropy is a growing phenomenon within the Larabanga-Mognori enclave in northern Ghana. This article seeks to assess the impacts of such visitor largess on community needs and development. Purposive sampling techniques were employed in selecting some respondents namely tour guides (in Larabanga) and cultural dancers (in Mognori) using focus group discussions (FGD) as a tool in eliciting data. A number of household heads were reached in both communities for their responses through in-depth interview (IDI) schedules. Data sourced which were mainly qualitatively was analysed in thematic frames. The study revealed that through visitor largess, amenities like boreholes and schools had been provided both communities. Other basic needs such as clothes, shoes, stationery and backpacks for school going children were also donated by tourists in both communities whilst instances of cash donations to some individuals were also reported. Both communities benefited from a donation of school blocks from visitors. The study concludes that adherence to personal hygiene and sanitation practices implied an improvement in living standards afforded through their encounter with tourists. Community members and elders are encouraged to put documented measures in place so that visitor philanthropy can be accounted for and be rmly rooted in the communities.Keywords: Travel Philanthropy, Largess, Donations, Tourism, Knowledge Transfer

  • Relevance of Communication Strategies and Funding Orphanages in Ghana
    • Authors: Wilberforce S. Dzisah
      Abstract: This paper examined the relevance of communications strategies in improving domestic funding of orphanages in Ghana and in particular SOS Children Villages. With funding diculties being faced by both State and non-State actors such United Nations Children’s Fund, most of the orphanages are struggling to generate enough funds to take care of the social needs of the orphanages. The study used quantitative (constructivist) and qualitative (motivations, ideas and opinions) methods to address the key objectives of the paper – funding deciencies and the critical role of the media and communication strategies in solving the problem. It established the importance of communication strategies using media dependency and advocacy theories for social mobilization and behavioural change. The paper concludes that orphanages need a communication strategic plan for advocacy and resource mobilisation. A key recommendation is for a national policy framework to assist establish an endowment fund for orphanages. Such a national policy should make it mandatory for the Ghanaian media to oer their platforms for advocacy and fundraising activities by the orphanages.Keywords: Communication, Funding, Media, Orphanages, SOS CV Ghana

  • Rural-Urban Linkages: e Case of Rural Migrants from Upper West Region to
           Obuasi Municipality in the Ashanti Region, Ghana
    • Authors: Hikimatu Lalaki Awudu, Owusu Boampong, Nana Amma Anokye
      Abstract: In migration studies, research on backward linkages has received a lot of attention. However, research on rural-urban forward linkages is scanty. This article explored the forward linkages from rural households in the Upper West Region of Ghana to urban migrants in the mining town of Obuasi, which has a long history of attracting migrant workers. The study employed a qualitative research design using in-depth interviews to gather data from 26 respondents in Tizza, Kojokpere, Issa, Kaleo and Jang; and 13 urban migrants in Obuasi. Four focus group discussions were conducted in Obuasi to support and validate the in-depth interviews conducted in the rural communities. The study shows that the resource ows from Tizza, Kojokpere, Issa, Kaleo and Jang to urban migrants in Obuasi are in the form of social support, nancial and food transfers. The rural households view the resource ows as necessary for sustaining the livelihoods of their migrant family members and for maintaining aective ties. The study establishes that reverse ows put nancial and social burdens on rural households and this burden drains resources of rural households.Keywords: Forward Linkages, Livelihood Strategy, Migrants, Obuasi, Upper West Region

  • Human Rights-Based Approach to Reducing Preventable Maternal Deaths in
           Ghana: A Six-year Review of Media Reports
    • Authors: Renee Aku Sitsofe Morhe, Felix Kwame Sosoo, Emmanuel Komla Senanu Morhe
      Abstract: This paper sought to ascertain the extent to which litigation is highlighted in reports on maternal deaths in the Ghanaian media. Using internet search we reviewed reports on maternal death in the media from January, 2013 to December, 2018. Thematic analyses of the reports that satisfied the inclusion/exclusion criteria were performed. It was established that healthcare leaders and key state personalities have through the media created good public awareness about unacceptably high maternal deaths in the country. The root causes were highlighted. Only few case reports were presented and there had been scanty emphasis on using legal means of addressing the problem of inadequate access as a human rights violation. In conclusion rights-based approach to addressing poor maternal health challenges in Ghana is grossly underutilized. Stakeholders are encouraged to include the option of using legal redress as a means of ensuring government and healthcare providers keep their promise of providing quality maternity care to reduce preventable deaths of women.Keywords: Ghana, Litigation, Rights-Based Approach, Maternal Health, Media Reports
