Investigating the Role of Poultry and the Impact of HPAI on Livelihoods in Ghana
This Briefing reports on a data set and econometric models used (i) to predict and profile which households are most likely to be poultry producers and which are most likely to keep larger small-scale flocks (6–500 birds), to understand who would be most affected in case of an HPAI outbreak, and (ii) to assess the impact of a potential HPAI outbreak on livelihood outcomes, including income and wealth (measured as value of assets). Such information is expected to assist in the design of efficient, effective, and equitable interventions for HPAI mitigation and control in Ghana.
