Resilient Livelihoods Training

June 17 - June 21

Event Details  :  Resilient Livelihoods Training

INTRODUCTION

Secure livelihoods are characterized by households that have different activities within the community that provide income, shelter, and other factors to ensure their well-being. This ensures that the society has adequate resources to fall back on in times of need.

Livelihood security can be promoted through improving diversity and security of resources, skills, and technologies that are available to agricultural communities. This training event is therefore intended to enable households, communities, and countries build resilience so as to strengthen their ability to manage change by maintaining or transforming their living standards in the face of shocks or stresses without compromising their long-term prospects.
