Livelihoods and protection in Sri Lanka: A review of the Danish Refugee Council's integrated livelihoods, protection and emergency response programme in Sri Lanka

Research reports

This report reviews the Danish Refugee Council's livelihoods and protection programme in northern and eastern Sri Lanka. The objectives of the review were to:

  • assess the overall relevance and impact of the programme on protection and livelihoods from 2006 until mid-2008; and
  • provide recommendations for the future development of the programme, in particular how to sharpen and strengthen the livelihoods approach and livelihoods activities in programmes.

The objective of this review is to strengthen DRC's corporate learning and understanding of how livelihood and protection approaches can be combined and mutually reinforce each other for the benefit of assisted people. The review focused on the Danida-funded integrated livelihood rehabilitation project, which is currently being implemented in Trincomalee and Vavuniya.
