 Household Livelihood Security (HLS) has become CARE’s basic framework for program analysis, design, monitoring and evaluation. HLS grows out of a food security perspective, but is based on the observation that food is only one important basic need among several, and adequate food consumption may be sacrificed for other important needs. Given that the
causes of poverty are complex, HLS provides a framework to analyze and understand the web of poverty and people’s mechanisms for dealing with it.
