Social Vulnerability, Sustainable Livelihoods and Disasters
Report to DFID 

This report to DFID gives importance to the need of the sustainable livelihood approach to analyze and prepare for peoples’ vulnerability to natural hazards. Development work has important role in reducing the elements of vulnerability that are a result of poverty.  At the moment the SL approach incorporates shocks as a highly significant component of the ‘vulnerability context’. But there is little analysis of how shocks affect livelihood assets and outcomes. The purpose of this report is to enhance the capability of  DFID and CHAD to develop policy for reducing social vulnerability to hazards. It contains 
•    Information, analysis and resources to improve the incorporation of disaster vulnerability awareness into mainstream development process
•    Suggestions for an improved basis for the inclusion of vulnerability analysis in humanitarian policies. 
•    an initial survey and assessment of various vulnerability analysis methods and analyze their relevance to policy design in humanitarian and development work;
•    and  inventory of existing work on vulnerability analysis and their links to sustainable livelihood    approaches
The sustainable livelihoods (SL) approach in development work  aims to reduce the elements of vulnerability that are a result of poverty
