Threshold / Standard
Disaster/conflict affect peoples access to income and sustainable employment. This should take into account the varying needs, skills and social norms to ensure equitable access. Distinction has to be made between having no income even before the crisis and losing income due to the impact of crisis. This indicator focuses on the former.
Guidance on phases
Phase 1: Establish the estimated number and characteristics of households whose income is affected by the crisis to establish the scale of impact on livelihood Identify emergency responses (e.g.. cash/food for work, emergency response-related employment, grants scheme, livelihoods start-up packs/kits etc.) that has income transfer and / or income generation scheme and estimate the coverage; Phase 2: Update the estimated number and characteristics of households whose income is affected by the crisis to establish the scale of impact on livelihood. Update the emergency responses that have cash transfer and / or income generation scheme and estimate the coverage. Identify responses that can evolve into sustainable income and employment and share information with development actors to ensure linkage to long term recovery; Phase 3: Verify the estimations with formal records ? when necessary triangulate with field data and third party analysis; Phase 4: Conduct in depth sectoral analysis.
Guidance for pre-crisis/baseline
Pre-crisis census, other official reports, or media quoted household income types and levels. Determine rapidly the crisis? impacts on livelihood, to the extent possible specified by sectors/type of employment, geographical area, and population segment based on damage assessment report, economic/social welfare authorities, and / or other analysis such as livelihoods assessments (See ILO/FAO Guide on Livelihoods Assessments, 2008), Household Economy Analysis, or Household profiling. Incorporate basic conflict/disaster risk analysis as part of the overall assessments on livelihoods.
