This manual is intended to be a straightforward and helpful guide to the different aspects of applying a ‘livelihoods lens’ - an approach that helps people to better understand their assets so they can use them to build stronger livelihoods. It also helps them to understand what makes them vulnerable and how they can use systems and processes to improve their livelihoods.
