Threshold / Standard
Livelihood assets are (human, capital, natural, physical, social, or financial) resource base of the household that when combined with capabilities and activities will generate means of living, and if sustainable, generate the well being of a household. Livelihood assets are to be determined locally. e.g. Fishing boats for coastal community, land and agricultural implements in the hinterlands, education, skills and capitals in urban area, house, car, household utilities, land, physical infrastructure, social networks, associations, etc.
Guidance on phases
Phase 1: Determine which livelihood sectors and estimate the number of households affected by the crisis. Establish up to five most critical livelihood assets associated with the livelihood sectors affected by the crisis. Determine if there are livelihood assets component in any emergency response measures and estimate the number of households that benefitted in terms of receiving livelihood assets from such measures. Livelihoods assessment that include wealth ranking can be done periodically to monitor replacement and replenishment of assets through emergency response. Incorporate a basic disaster/conflict risk analysis as part of the livelihoods assessments; 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 has income transfer and / or income generation scheme and estimate the coverage. Determine that interventions are conflict and disaster risk sensitive. Determine households and individuals already engaged in self employment and wage employment due to crisis response. Document set of assets acquired due to crisis response activities. Compile the information on income earning opportunities, and assets replacement/replenishment levels, and share this with recovery and development actors, where possible; Phase 3: verify the estimations with formal records, when necessary triangulate with field data and third party analysis. Share information with other stakeholders to enable the link between early and long term recovery; Phase 4: Conduct in depth sectoral analysis
Guidance for pre-crisis/baseline
Pre-crisis census on types of livelihood to the extent possible at household level. Official pre-crisis reports describing economic assets of the crisis-affected areas. Livelihoods assessment that include wealth ranking in pre-crisis situations; Ensure assessments incorporate basic disaster risk/conflict analysis to ensure crisis sensitivity.
