Effectiveness of school-based interventions for preventing tobacco smoking initiation among young people in low- and middle-income countries: a systematic review protocol

Divine Darlington Logo, Yeetey Enuameh, George Adjei, Arti Singh, Emmanuel Nakua, Edward Dassah, Felix Boakye Oppong & Ellis Owusu-Dabo
Abstract Background Despite the commendable progress made globally in tobacco control, the world is falling short of achieving a 30% relative reduction in current tobacco use by 2025. The African region remains the least in the efforts in fighting the tobacco epidemic and is most exploited by the tobacco industry. Schools have been continuously used for over three decades as a setting for delivering youth smoking prevention programmes; however, the evidence of the effectiveness of...

Data from: Numbers and population trends of large herbivores in Mole National Park, Ghana

Kwaku Brako Dakwa, Kweku Ansah Monney, Innes Cameron Cuthill & Stephen Harris
Mole National Park (MNP) is Ghana’s oldest and largest wildlife preserve. Eight large herbivores were counted in four different seasons in 2013/2014 on transects covering 4.7% of the park to estimate their population sizes and trends after changes in park management; all species were more abundant than previously reported. Averaging counts across seasons, and including all age classes, gave an estimated population of 1595 elephants, which is likely to be a substantial proportion of the...

Examining the Effect of Corruption and Bureaucracy on SMEs Growth in the Kumasi Metropolis of Ghana

Kwamena Minta Nyarku & Stephen Oduro
Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) are considered a seed-bed of entrepreneurship and innovation in most emerging economies; nevertheless, SMEs sometimes lack an enabling business climate, which hinders their potential growth. This paper examines the effect of corruption and bureaucracy on SMEs growth in the Kumasi Metropolis of Ghana. The study was a quantitative research, and convenience sampling method was employed to select 373 owners/managers as respondents for the study. Employing questionnaire as its main data...

Conclusion

Daniel Agyapong, Regina Brautlacht & Joseph Owino
There is a paradigm shift from traditional content-based education and training to competencybased and practice-oriented training. This shift has occurred because practice-oriented teaching has been found to produce a training outcome that is industry focused, generating the relevant occupational standards. Competency-based training program often comprises of modules broken into segments called learning outcomes. These learning outcomes are based on criteria set by industry and assessment is designed to ensure students become competent in their respective...

Exploratory Study of the Entrepreneurial Ecosystem in Central Region, Ghana

Mavis S. B. Mensah & Edward N. A. Amarteifio

A Vignettes-Based Exploration of Attitudes of Parents Toward Reporting of Child Sexual Abuse in Ghana

Joshua Amo-Adjei, Antoine Deliege, Anastasiya Nurzhynska, Ruth Essuman & Muhammad Rafiq Khan
Reporting child sexual abuse (CSA) to law enforcement institutions is the ideal child protection imperative. The role of parents in this process is unquestionably profound. Yet, there is limited evidence on parental perspectives on reporting CSA to law enforcement agencies in developing country contexts. We apply vignettes to describe the views of parents about reporting CSA perpetrated by “family members, schoolteachers, and strangers.” Data was collected from 89 parents from four culturally diverse regions of...

On the goodness-of-fits of the generalized lambda distribution on high-frequency stock index returns

Peterson Owusu, Nagaratnam Jeyasreedharan & Imhotep Paul Alagidede
In this paper, we investigate the goodness-of-fit of the flexible four-parameter generalized Lambda Distribution (GLD) for high-frequency 5-min returns sampled from the DJI30 Index. Applying Moment Matching (MM) and Maximum Likelihood Estimation (MLE) techniques, we highlight the significance of the higher-order parameters of the GLD distribution to depict the asymmetric and fat-tailed behaviour observed in high-frequency returns data. We also show and explain why the MLE consistently outperforms the MM; especially in the presence of...

Data from: Land use types influenced avian assemblage structure in a forest–agriculture landscape in Ghana

Justus Precious Deikumah, Richard Kwafo & Vida Asieduwaa Konadu
The conservation of biodiversity within tropical forest regions does not lie only in the maintenance of natural forest areas, but on conservation strategies directed towards agricultural land types within which they are embedded. This study investigated variations in bird assemblages of different functional groups of forest-dependent birds in three agricultural land types, relative to distance from the interior of 34 tropical forest patches of varying sizes. Point counts were used to sample birds at each...

Tourism Entrepreneurship in Rural Ghana: Opportunities and Concerns

Ewoenam Afua Afenyo-Agbe
The role of tourism entrepreneurship in rural development continues to be a subject of interest and debate among academia and practitioners. Theoretically, it is anticipated that tourism entrepreneurship will lead to livelihood diversification, enhancement and ultimately a revitalization of the rural economy. While tourism is posited as an accessible entrepreneurship pathway, there is a dearth of information regarding rural dwellers’ actual experiences with it, especially within the Ghanaian context. Using a case study approach and...

Regina Appiah-Gyimah & Rosemond Boohene
This study sought to examine the relationship between the components of SMEs social capital and firm performance. Using the social capital theory and the resource-based view as the theoretical foundations and census, 1,532 SMEs were selected in the Accra Metropolis for the study. Empirical results from 717 SMEs, utilising the hierarchical linear regression model, revealed that owner/manger’s network relationships are beneficial to the firm depending on when the relationships are closed or opened. Moreover, the...
