Poverty - United Nations Sustainable Development

Why is sustainability important?
Sustainability is an important qualifier to DFID’s view of livelihoods because it implies that progress in poverty reduction is lasting, rather than fleeting. This does not mean that any given resource or institution must survive in exactly the same form. Rather it implies accumulation in the broad capital base that provides the basis for improved livelihoods, especially for poor people.
Trade-offs and choices
Recognising the multiple dimensions of sustainability and people’s multiple livelihood objectives is key to the sustainable livelihoods approach. However with diversity come trade-offs; trade-offs within
livelihood outcomes (see 2.6) and between dimensions of sustainability and livelihood outcomes are inevitable.

Very few livelihoods qualify as sustainable across all these dimensions. Nevertheless sustainability is a key goal and its pursuit should influence all DFID’s support activities. Progress towards sustainability can then be assessed, even if ‘full’ sustainability is never achieved.

Sustainable livelihoods: Putting people at the centre of development
The livelihoods approach is a way of thinking about the objectives, scope and priorities for development. A specific livelihoods framework and objectives have been developed to assist with implementation, but the approach goes beyond these. In essence it is a way of putting people at the centre of development, thereby increasing the effectiveness of development assistance.
This set of Guidance Sheets attempts to summarise and share emerging thinking on the sustainable livelihoods approach. It does not offer definitive answers and guidelines. Instead, it is intended to stimulate readers to reflect on the approach and make their own contributions to its further development. The sustainable livelihoods framework The framework, which is presented in schematic form below and discussed in detail in Section 2 of the Guidance Sheets, has been developed to help understand and analyse the livelihoods of the poor. It is also useful in assessing the effectiveness of existing efforts to reduce poverty. Like all frameworks, it
is a simplification; the full diversity and richness of livelihoods can be understood only by qualitative and participatory analysis at a local level.
