Promoting Inclusive Markets and Financial Systems
Paper presented at the World Conference on Humanitarian Studies in Istanbul, October 24, 2013.
Evidence from case studies around the world shows that the application of livelihoods-based standards can improve the quality and timeliness of humanitarian response during and after a crisis. These standards provide tools and frameworks for the protection of livelihood assets and the redevelopment of livelihood strategies during and after a crisis. They also contribute to the debate among practitioners about the importance of livelihoods in humanitarian response.
