Multinational - Integrated Management of Invasive Aquatic Weeds in West Africa - Project Completion Report (PCR)

Thus, the incomes of fishermen and transporters are drastically reduced due to increased operating costs of boats; farmers must devote much more time to the cleaning of irrigation canals, resulting in production and productivity losses. These losses are reflected in the selling price of fishery and agricultural products on the...
