  1. 1. CSISABen BeltonCSISA aquacultureproduction economics andpoverty surveys
  2. 2. Introduction• Three socioeconomic surveysconducted under CSISA in 2012:•Production economics•Poverty•Market prices
  3. 3. Production economics• Aim: to understand the profitability, andproductivity of major aquaculture systems inBangladesh, and their place within the widerhousehold/farm economy (this is very poorlydocumented for the vast majority of systems)• Coverage: 3165 farm households in 6 hubsdistricts, representing 14 distinct productionsystems• Duration: 5 months
  4. 4. Production economics• Methodology:– Rapid appraisal with key informants in each hub tolocate Unions with high concentrations ofaquaculture and identify main systems– Field visits for ground truthing– Select a cluster of 2-3 villages from each union– Conduct interviews over 7 day period and attemptto interview all households in the cluster (aim forminimum 100 interviews)
  5. 5. Production economics• Current status:– Data entered, cleaned and under analysis• Expected outputs:– Summary review of aquaculture systems inBangladesh– Related papers
  6. 6. Poverty Survey• Aim: to better understand relationshipbetween commercial aquaculturedevelopment and employment, localeconomic growth and poverty reduction(interested in effects on broadercommunity, not just producers)• Coverage: 681 households in 9 communitiesfrom 3 hubs, representing 6 major systems ofaquaculture
  7. 7. Poverty Survey• Methodology:– Villages selected as subset of productioneconomics survey to allow for comparisons– Household census conducted in each village– Population stratified by landholding size andhouseholds selected proportionally– Approximately half the households in eachcommunity interviewed (sufficient to ensure ≈5%confidence interval) using household survey basedon IFPRI design
  8. 8. Poverty Survey• Current status:– Data entered, cleaned and under analysis• Expected outputs:– Summary report and related papers
  9. 9. Market Price Survey• Aim: to track weekly prices for major farmedand wild fish species at urban and ruralwholesale and retain markets in CSISA hubsand disseminate the information to hubmanagers and other users• Coverage: 40 markets (9 urban retail, 11 urbanwholesale, 9 rural retail, 11 rural wholesale)• Duration: October 2011 - present
  10. 10. Market Price Survey• Methodology– Identify major rural and urban wholesale andretail fish markets in each hub– Recruit a worker in each market to record fishprice data on a weekly basis– Collect data from each market on monthly basis,enter by smartphone and remotely upload tocustomized database– Circulate price database to hub managers and keystaff by 20th of each month
