In this episode of –between the lines– IDS researcher and co-director of the STEPS Centre, Ian Scoones, talks to colleague Marina Apgar about his book, Sustainable Livelihoods and Rural Development, part of a series of small books for big ideas.
The book looks at the role of social institutions and the politics of policy, as well as issues of identity, gender and generation. Ian argues that integrated livelihoods approaches are an essential lens on questions of development, key to addressing challenges of poverty, inequality and environment, and a useful framework for implementing the Sustainable Development Goals.
