A Double-edged Sword: Livelihoods in Emergencies
Guidance and Tools for Improved Programming
About this resource
For women in emergencies, assets can help overcome crises but can also quickly turn into liabilities. This review of current practices offers a draft tool to assess risks for individuals in livelihood assessments and programs.
This report presents answers to two research questions:
(1) How and when are practitioners analyzing risks to different individuals when implementing livelihood programs in emergencies, and
(2) What are the opportunities, lessons and tools to further test on the ground and refine for application?
The primary audiences for this report are the organizations and livelihood practitioners, protection of officers and gender staff who respond to emergencies and support livelihood programs. Donors that fund livelihood and protection programs are a secondary audience.
