Livelihoods at the limit: Food security in a changing world. Evidence from the consolidated Household Economy Analysis database

Food Security in a Changing World draws on the compiled Household Economy Analysis (HEA) baseline dataset to provide empirical evidence to address four key policy and operational questions related to food security:

  • What does it mean to be poor in rural areas today and how does this relate to food security?
  • What part does cash play in rural livelihoods?
  • Should the livestock sector get priority attention?
  • What can we learn from the limited urban HEA database about broad differences between urban and rural poverty?

This is one of five reports and papers in the Livelihoods at the Limit series, which offers critical insights into key questions about what resilience means and how to achieve it in different livelihood contexts
