Change in number of productive assets (e.g. lands, livestock, infrastructures, etc.) protected and strengthened against natural or human threats.
The indicator keeps the attention to protect and strengthen livelihoods assets to improve communities/households/productive organizations resilience.
Livelihoods strengthening and protection through DRR practices:
- The creation of household or community infrastructures to protect livelihoods assets against natural or human hazards (e.g. livestock shelters, seeds banks)
- The use or adaptation of agriculture production and livestock to climate/weather conditions (drought adapted seeds, etc.)
- Initiatives or projects that reduce or eliminate livelihoods damaging production practices (climate change mitigation, natural resources over exploitation, etc.)
- The use of insurances to cope with primary production/productive assets losses (e.g. drought prone areas)
- The use of destocking techniques
- Other infrastructures (and livelihoods assets) protection and strengthening initiatives (e.g. distaste risk reduction actions, surveillance mechanisms)
- MSME: micro, small and medium enterprises (formal or informal)
- DRR: disaster risk reduction
Wealth groups; Livelihoods group (e.g. pastoralist, farmers, traders)
Period to achieve the objective;
Direction of change:
Both secondary and primary data collection can be used according to context.
- Baseline/Endline (related to the specific natural resource targeted). 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: Depending on the livelihood infrastructure/asset (e.g. forest Ha, coastline meter-kilometer, number of water sources/water collectors, etc.)
Data Collection methods:
Secondary data analysis;
Livelihoods infrastructure recovery measure;
Households Survey, Focus Group Discussions;
Key Informant Interviews.
Depending on the type of productive infrastructure/asset service, the indicator measure:
the number of infrastructures available;
the change in their coverage (rate de services par population);
the improvement of the infrastructures (e.g. formalized, managed/management committee) and
the preparation of protection measures to promote services' resilience.
Note that this indicator should be measured before expected hazards happens. In this regards It is important to define how the action implemented in the program is going to protect community/ households livelihoods and their livelihoods assets.
