Livelihood and Nutrition Enhancement Interventions
 
One of the biggest challenges facing development practitioners and policy-makers in the world today, is how they can assist large numbers of people in the developing world to have a meaningful livelihood which sustains them, and ensures they can live with dignity and hope for the future.

Livelihood interventions may take:
A spatial approach, such as addressing problems in a degraded watershed
A segmental approach, such as addressing problems of the landless or the disabled
A sectoral approach, involving addressing problems of dairy farmers or cotton growers
A holistic approach, involving a range of crosscutting interventions is more complex, but may be essential to address the problems of the poorest of people living in remote areas
