This book and NTSC video pack is an important new resource for learning and teaching about sustainable livelihoods. The Disaster Mitigation for Sustainable Livelihoods project was developed by the Department of Environmental and Geographical Science at the University of Cape Town, along with partner organizations in southern Africa. This book, a direct outcome of the DiMP project, is a valuable guide to understanding the much-debated concept of "sustainable livelihoods", and aims to provide practical ideas on how to integrate this approach into development and project planning. After an introduction to the concept of sustainable livelihoods, the book presents a five-day training course for teaching about livelihoods, complete with step by step session plans, activity guides and presentations. The course includes activities, case studies, and video clips, and is supported by internet and print references for obtaining more in-depth information on the subjects covered. The material has been written for development practitioners, trainers and managers in the NGO, government and consulting sectors, and will also be avaluable resource for international development education programs. The project also includes a guide to practical methodologies and tools used in livelihoods work, and a variety of household and locality profiles from South Africa as additional training resources.
