ASSESSEMENT OF RESIDENTS’ ATTITUDES TOWARDS TOURISM AND HIS IMPACT ON COMMUNITIES IN THE DANUBE DELTA

Published in Scientific Papers. Series "Management, Economic Engineering in Agriculture and rural development", Vol. 17 ISSUE 2
Written by Anca PAVEL-NEDEA, Ion DONA

The Danube Delta was in 2016 the object of large debates regarding the future development of this area. The proposed strategic measures concentrate on the economic benefits of local communities and on the conservation of biodiversity, but in the same time sustainable tourism was considered (together with small industries and traditional crafts development) a very important source of revenue for the local communities. We consider that understanding residents’ perceptions over the tourism activities from Danube Delta can improve the future decisions of stakeholders. In this context, the paper examines the attitudes of local people from Danube Delta towards the ongoing tourism and the impact of tourism on their communities. Questionnaire surveys were carried out in 2016 in 12 villages and were collected responses from 146 local residents. The main results of our survey revealed a positive attitude of residents towards tourism in general (especially amongst female, non-employees, high-income and directly involved in tourism respondents) and towards tourism in their community (especially amongst male, non-employees, low-income and directly involved in tourism respondents).

Published in Scientific Papers. Series "Management, Economic Engineering in Agriculture and rural development", Vol. 16 ISSUE 4
Written by Ioan STETCO

The present paper aims to assess the allocative and economic efficiency at Romanian regional agriculture level for a certain level of input prices, by Data Envelopment Analysis approach. We utilize in our research the following FADN data from 2007 and 2013: inputs – labor (AWU- annual working unit), land (UAA-utilized agricultural area) and capital (euro – average farm capital); outputs – total output (euro) and farm net income (euro); input prices (rent paid, wages paid and depreciation). The main results of our research revealed for 2007-2013 period an increase in economic efficiency, but also indicate the allocative inefficiency (inefficient mix of inputs) us major cause for not reaching optimum levels in 2013 despite the improvement in technical efficiency (an increase in farm volume activities).

This study was designed to investigate the relationship between crop production and selected climatic variables and human diseases in Ondo State, Nigeria. Time series data spanning 32 years (1982 to 2013) were used for this study. The analytical tools employed for this study were descriptive statistics and auto-regressive distributed lag (ARDL) model. The results confirmed the presence of long run equilibrium between crop production and temperature, rainfall, incidence of malaria and incidence of pneumonia. The results of long run estimates showed that rainfall and pneumonia coefficients were significant but negatively affected crop production in the long run, while all the variable except temperature were also significant but negatively affected crop production in the short run. The error correction model (ECM) value of -0.142 which was significant at 5% level showed that about 14% of disequilibria from the previous year’s shock converge to the long run equilibrium in the current year. Therefore, disease prevention and environmental sanitation under the framework of the primary health care programme that can reduce human exposure to climate–related health risks should be strengthened by the government.

The aim of this paper is to present the competitiveness of the Lithuanian farms. To determine the farm competitiveness level it was used the competitiveness index. The paper proposes an economic analysis of farms and their competitiveness according to their size in the period 2011-2015. The measurement was made at the farm level and the data of Lithuanian Farm Accountancy Data Network (FADN) was employed. This analysis revealed that Lithuanian farms in the group of 20-<30 ha and farms in the group of 40 ha and larger in 2011-2015, except some years, demonstrated the competitiveness. But it was indicated the lack of development abilities of farms’ up to 20 ha and 30–<40 ha over all the analysed period.

The study determined and assessed the push and pull factors influencing participation of people in fish farming enterprise with a view to reducing fishpond abandonment in the State. Multistage and proportionate sampling procedure was employed to select 240 fish farmers from the three agricultural zones of the State. Data were collected with validated and structured interview schedule. The data were described with percentage, mean and standard deviation while inferences were drawn with factor and regression analyses. Results showed the mean age of the farmers to be 48± 9 years. Majority were married with household size of 6±3 people. The farmers had good formal education. Out of the nine factors isolated to influence participation in fish farming, only three were identified to pull people into the enterprise while six pushed people away. It was then concluded that if the scenario should continue, the future of fish farming is bleak in the country and the cost of fish importation would continue to be on the high side.

Published in Scientific Papers. Series "Management, Economic Engineering in Agriculture and rural development", Vol. 16 ISSUE 3
Written by J. O. AYINDE, B. E. OLAREWAJU, O. T. ALAO

The study assessed agricultural internship trainings being exposed to students and their job aspiration after Universities education with the aim of identifying different trainings exposed to them. A Multistage sampling procedure was used to select two hundred (200) respondents from four (4) Federal Universities in South Western Nigeria. Descriptive and inferential statistics were used to analyse data collected. The result revealed that the mean age of the respondents was 24 ± 2.33 years, and majorities (72.5%) of the respondents’ parents were educated up to the tertiary institution. It was observed that the trainings exposed to the students differ across selected universities namely; Application of Computers to Agriculture, On-farm Demonstration, Teaching in Secondary School, Baking making, Tie and Dye, Horticulture crop production, Pasture production and Management technique. Furthermore, it was observed that respondents were exposed to the same trainings irrespective of their Departments except for Federal University of Technology because of the peculiarities of the Departments. Moreover, correlation analysis results revealed that there was no significant relationship between parents’ working years (r = 0.034; P≤ 0.05), age (r = -0.078; P≤ 0.05) and years of education(r = -0.045; P≤ 0.05) of respondents and their job aspiration. The study recommended among others that Universities offering agriculture as a course should compare their curriculum periodically and the needs of students should be considered when drafting internship plan for trainings in order to motivate to embrace agriculture as a profession thereby enhance food security in the country.
