Livelihoods Programming in Rural Refugee Contexts
Altai Consulting was contracted by the IKEA Foundation to undertake a Rural Livelihoods Community Readiness Study (RLCRS) in three refugee settlements in Uganda and Ethiopia. The Rural Livelihoods Community Readiness Study looks to crystallise learning from previous and current research and programming, whilst adding a unique and practical perspective. The study combines the development and testing of an assessment framework and toolkit, to support the design and implementation of future rural livelihoods programmes in a refugee context. The framework and toolkit provide a market driven, context sensitive approach to identify livelihood opportunities and partners in a variety of areas.
