Socio-economic Study of the Coastal People

Socio-economic Study of the Coastal People of West Bengal (1990-1991)

It is common knowledge that people living in the coastal areas of Bengal have been largely sidelined from the high road of development. What was lacking, however, was a scientific study based on primary data that could substantiate this belief and provide an index for the rectification of the existing situation.

Sea Explorers’ Institute initiated such a study to explore this field. The Socio-economic Study of the Coastal People of West Bengal, a project awarded by the Department of Ocean Development, Government of India, covered four villages. It revealed that not only did a yawning gap exist between coastal and upland regions, but also that a micro-level planning at the village level was needed for forging any consequential change in the economic condition of the region.
