There has been an outstanding effort to develop key indicators and promote their use by different humanitarian actors and in different fora or coordination spaces, like The Sphere Project, thematic clusters, etc. A good example could be the Key Results Indicators (KRI) for the sectors of food, nutrition, health, wash and shelter introduced by DG ECHO for funded operations.
Additionally there has been considerable advance in the main sectors such as WASH, shelter, nutrition, services in internally displaced or refugee camps... However, regarding Livelihoods programming there is still the need to have commonly agreed standard indicators evidenced-based to facilitate quality project design and results assessment.
Therefore, the goal of this list is to fill this gap, offering to humanitarian actors a list of Livelihoods Key Programming Indicators. This list aims to be adopted as a standardized way to measure and analyze livelihoods wide-impact (aggregating metrics from all livelihoods operations), and to facilitate the quality program design and reinforce consistency of the projects in Livelihoods.
The Livelihoods Resource Centre (LRC),in consultation with practitioners (specialized in Livelihoods and Monitoring & Evaluation) from different organizations (and after analyzing more than thirty different indicators sets), has developed the livelihood key indicators' list (included in this document) as part of a coordinated effort to achieve a standardized tool that will enable a wide-sight or analysis of livelihood programs' impact and to improve organizations accountability.
