Analysing Policy for Sustainable Livelihoods

Published on 1 January 2000

This report argues that it is possible to use the Sustainable Livelihoods (SL) approach as a starting point for bridging the gap between bottom-up livelihoods analysis and top-down policy analysis.

However, doing so requires three elements which have so far been lacking:

  • a model of interaction between policy and livelihoods, which is consistent with the SL framework
  • a clearer understanding of the role of social and political capital within the framework
  • an approach to policy analysis, structured to ensure that it can both draw on and feed into SL analysis
