Redefining Sustainable Livelihoods

Chapter 2 in Women Reclaiming Sustainable Livelihoods, 2012, pp 12-18 from Palgrave Macmillan

Abstract: Abstract The term Sustainable Livelihoods (SL) has been used as a concept, a frame-work of analysis and a strategy that focuses on human lives and the structures that shape people’s well-being. This brief chapter, written from my location in the Global South, traces its emergence and suggests that gender concerns be brought more explicitly into the SL approach.
