Livelihoods are fundamentally about what people do to meet their needs over time, including how they cope with and recover from shocks. Understanding how people do this in a range of fragile and conflict-affected situations is a central part of the work of the Secure Livelihoods Research Consortium (SLRC).
This report synthesises findings on livelihoods from the SLRC across a range of its quantitative and qualitative research projects.
This report is one of a series produced at the end of SLRC’s first phase. These reports bring together and analyse all relevant material on SLRC’s overarching research questions, with a view to drawing out broader lessons that will be of use to policy makers, practitioners and researchers.
