The subject is concerned with the practice of sustainable livelihoods in the developing world. The range of approaches to designing, implementing and evaluating development projects for sustainable livelihoods is critically examined. Topics include: project planning, understanding the project environment, logical framework analysis, participatory and control-oriented management techniques. Through case studies from the Asia-Pacific region these approaches are examined in the context of the socio-economic, cultural and environmental factors that influence the vulnerability and resilience of communities and their capacity to respond to global and local processes of change.
