Sustainable Livelihoods Approaches: Past, present and…future?

Published on 1 June 2011

How are Sustainable Livelihoods Approaches (SLAs) relevant to current and future development challenges? What has been learnt from the experience of using SLAs to date?

This Sustainable Livelihoods Highlights Brief looks at a series of six seminars, funded by the Economic and Social Research Council from 2008-11, which brought together practitioners, policymakers and researchers to reflect on the development and adaptation of SLAs, and debate their value in addressing current development challenges. The case studies and discussions from the seminar series showed that SLAs have maintained their importance as a poverty reduction approach.
