SCALE - System-wide Collaborative Action for Livelihoods and the Environment by webadmin — last modified Jan 29, 2013 10:52 PM
SCALE—System-wide Collaborative Action for Livelihoods and the Environment—is an approach for broadening development impact. By providing a framework to achieve widespread change, SCALE can help improve people’s livelihoods and quality of life by helping them manage their natural resources in a sustainable way. SCALE has evolved from more than a decade of work by GreenCOM, a U.S. Agency for International Development global environmental communication program. GreenCOM has had the unique opportunity of working with people in more than thirty countries around the world to address an extensive range of issues including: - Natural resource management (coastal, forest, watershed); - Biodiversity conservation; - Ecotourism; - Sustainable agriculture; - Water and energy efficiency; - Clean production; and- Solid waste management.
Measuring Impacts of HIV-AIDS on Rural Livelihoods and Food Security by webadmin — last modified Jan 10, 2013 09:47 AM
The main purpose of this paper is to examine general patterns of the impacts of HIV/AIDS on rural livelihood assets and to propose a set of indicators to measure these impacts. A related objective is to identify indicators for evaluating the effectiveness of mitigation efforts. The paper builds on previous work done by FAO on the linkages between the HIV/AIDS epidemic, agriculture, food security and rural development. The paper was developed by C. Shannon Stokes while a Visiting Scientist at FAO (presently Professor of Rural Sociology, Pennsylvania State University), in close collaboration with staff of the FAO Population and Development Service. We hope the paper will stimulate innovative thinking and inspire new interventions to effectively counteract the impacts of HIV/AIDS on rural livelihoods.
