Number/percentage of targeted population's livelihoods <restored to, improved from> <pre disaster level, baseline level, last year -same period-, normal year>



Result level: 




Change in population's livelihoods compared with a reference level (pre disaster level, baseline level, etc.)

This indicator measures the population / households / productive organizations / micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME) capacity to restore their livelihoods (source of food and income).
- Includes in-kind distributions (seeds, livestock, tools, etc.) that allow targeted population to restore their livelihoods
- Includes cash distribution interventions to restart targeted population's livelihoods
- Includes all kind of livelihoods restarting interventions (sources of food and income)

- MSME: micro, small and medium enterprises (formal or informal)

Gender, age, disabilities, chronic diseases (if individuals, associations members, etc.);
Head of household gender, age, disabilities, chronic diseases, dependency ratio (if households), and any other relevant criteria, such as urban/rural, religious, ethnic or political identities;
Wealth groups; Livelihoods group (e.g. pastoralist, farmers, traders)
Period to achieve the objective;

Direction of change: 

restore or increase

Data source: 

Both secondary and primary data collection can be used according to context.
- Baseline/Endline. If multiyear programme consider also a mid-term evaluation.
- Secondary data. Reliable/relevant sources from other actors, clusters or government (e.g. assessment information, reference to a normal situation).

Unit of Measurement: Population, but can also be households or productive organizations, or MSME. If percentage:
- Numerator: Number of targeted population that have restored/improved their livelihoods activity
- Denominator: Total number of targeted population

Data Collection methods:
Secondary data analysis;
Household surveys;
Key Informant Interviews;
MSMEs productive organizations records, focus groups and surveys.

Measurement Guidance: 

Measure this indicator asking households directly about the recovery of their livelihoods activity, and through questions related to it (e.g. number of Ha planted and/or harvested number of daily labour hired, number of heads of livestock, etc.).
For productive organizations and MSME use also record information (in/out sales, employees/ members, etc.)

Improvement/increase threshold must be defined in advance using baseline and secondary information.

Consider seasonal calendar and market price variations throughout the year to determine when to measure the indicator.
