The contributions of rural livelihood diversification towards household income-poverty alleviation in Madumeleng Village, Limpopo Province

Maake, Shadrack Manala January 2017 (has links)
Thesis (M.Dev. (Planning and Management)) -- University of Limpopo, 2017 / Although motivations vary across households, livelihood diversification is commonly adopted as a coping strategy against income-poverty and food insecurity in Africa. Income-poverty is disproportionately the main integral dimension of poverty in relative countries across Sub-Saharan Africa. This study investigated the extent to which rural livelihood diversification contribute to income-poverty alleviation in Madumeleng Village, South Africa. This exploratory research has adopted the methodological triangulation through qualitative and quantitative approaches. Additionally, these approaches were convenient for specific analysis of textual, factual, observation and conceptual data as well as to ensure credibility of the results. Moreover, normative design was applied to observe the relationship of livelihood diversification and income-poverty alleviation as the measurable variables of the study. Primary data was collected in Madumeleng Village through questionnaire survey which was administered to 144 respondents of the households. The households were selected through simple-random sampling and, purposively sampled traditional leader through interview schedule. The study argued that an increase in number of diverse livelihood activities strengthens ability and potential of the household to alleviate income-poverty. Notwithstanding poverty is multidimensional, findings of the study ascertained that most people embrace livelihood diversification as ideal route out of poverty. However, non-farm activities has been acknowledged as an important pathway out of income-poverty albeit prevalent barriers such as inadequate education, inaccessible formal credit facilities and fragmented infrastructure. The study recommended measures such as provision of quality rural infrastructure development and establishment of skills acquisition training programmes by local government authority, to widen access of the poor into non-farm activities and grant poor people an opportunity to eradicate entry barriers of high return livelihoods / Indigenous Knowledge Systems, National Research Foundation (IKS-NRF)

Investigating transitory and chronic poverty in South Africa, 2008-2015

Kruger, Ken Jason January 2018 (has links)
Magister Commercii - MCom (Economics) / In post-apartheid South Africa, the thrust of macroeconomic framework and corresponding policies inaugurated by the first democratically elected government have been geared towards, amongst others, poverty alleviation, employment creation and economic growth. To date, South Africa still faces many challenges in the fight against poverty. These challenges are characterised by a dynamic nature, in that certain people transition in and out of poverty, whilst others remain deeply rooted in chronic poverty. Injecting resources towards addressing this complex nature of poverty is still one of the major problems faced by the South African government. In spite of the fact that there are many money-metric studies on poverty in South Africa, these studies failed to accurately depict the dynamic nature of poverty; throughout the years, many studies have only attempted to examine poverty using static analysis by comparing cross-sectional household surveys. It is for this foremost mentioned reason that these studies have produced information that is inadequate for the elimination of persistent poverty. Examining and identifying the characteristics of the different groups of poor using longitudinal data for the purpose of comparing poverty levels and trends observed over time perhaps better capture the nature of poverty in South Africa. Hence, in this study, panel data will be utilised to investigate the dynamic aspect of poverty for the evaluation of dynamics at the individual level. Using the balanced component of the panel data from the first four available waves of the National Income Dynamics Study (NIDS) conducted in 2008-2015, the empirical findings indicate that the followings individuals are significantly more likely to be chronically poor: female Africans without Matric, aged younger than 25 years at the time of the first wave in 2008 (mean age being slightly above 20 years), living in traditional areas or farms in the KwaZulu-Natal, Eastern Cape, Limpopo, Northern Cape, Mpumalanga and Free State provinces, and inactive in the labour market. Also, they came from households headed by unemployed female Africans with relatively higher mean dependency ratio (above one) and household size (about seven) with either none or only one employed member, as well as associated with a greater likelihood of the households receiving social grant income and having inferior non-income welfare.

An investigation into the effectiveness of systems thinking approach in illuminating understanding of poverty as a complex situation : a South African case study.

Ntiisa, J. K. January 2007 (has links)
We are living in a world where academics and politicians seek to define the problem of poverty and where a range of policies and programmes have been introduced in response to one or other version of the problem. Over the years, academics , politicians , sociologists, economists and anthropologists have not come to an agreement on what poverty is or what should be done about it. They often talk about cross-purposes, the size and the seriousness of the problem. However, they agree on one thing: that poverty, wherever it exists, is a complex problem that requires sustainable and integrated policy responses . Research of poverty in South Africa has traditionally been divided into a threestage process: facts, causes and strategies. It is no longer acceptable to confine poverty research to only collecting data or analysing causes. Research should focus on finding ways and initiating programmes to prevent and cure the symptoms. The poor must be uplifted from their situation and have hope in the future. This research adopts a different approach altogether. It draws on the theory of Systems Thinking to illuminate understanding of the different aspects of poverty in a holistic and integrated manner. A South African example is presented, which clearly shows the interrelationships between government departments and the gaps of the present poverty alleviation and eradication policies and programmes. It argues that for poverty to be understood and for proper measures to be put in place, one must understand the dynamics surrounding poverty, as well as the interconnections between them. / Thesis (M.Sc.)-University of KwaZulu-Natal, Durban, 2007.
