House hold and infrastructure expenditure is highly useful in the case of poor farmer's i.e land- less, marginal, and small with less than 2 hectare of land. It is because that there is no other source of income to be meeting such kind of expenditure.

The book from which this Summary derives1 is underpinned by a vision of a world without hunger and poverty.

The breeding unit, which requires the part time involvement of the farmer, or his family member, provides a very stable and attractive additional income source for small and marginal farmers without affecting their main occupation.

Key words: Agro-ecosystem, India, livelihood, poor, sheep rearing. Introduction. Agriculture remains the mainstay of Indian economy and major source of livelihood of rural household, predominantly by small and marginal farmers, and securing the food and nutritional security.

Agriculture is the major source of livelihood for the rural poor; most of them depend on rain-fed agriculture and fragile forests for their livelihoods. Farmers in rural areas have to deal with failed crops and animal illness frequently and, due to limited communication facilities, solutions to their problems remain out of reach (World Bank, ).

The unit emphasises the complexity of studying rural livelihoods and the need to assess interactions within livelihood systems and between them and their wider economic, social, and political environments.

Unit Aims To assess the importance of rural livelihoods in national and global economies and communities. feedbacks. For example, in the imperfect-market environments characterizing most poor rural areas, incomes and consumption shape production (as when a poor household cannot afford crop inputs or must sacrifice leisure instead of hiring labor), and so may livelihood outcomes (as when hunger impedes one’s ability to work).

Disparate and partly overlapping frameworks of investigation are outlined, with an emphasis on three key questions. First, how is.

This chapter discusses how livelihoods, poverty and the lives of poor people, and inequality interact with climate change, climate variability, and extreme events in multifaceted and cross-scalar. In developing countries, where three out of four poor people live in rural areas and where more than 80% of rural people live in households that are involved in agriculture, improving poor farmers’ livelihoods is central for addressing rural development.

In recent times, organic farming has increasingly gained attention as a way to manage natural resources in a more sustainable way and to.

NICANDRO DURANTEFile Size: 1MB. Poor households are vulnerable to sudden and pronounced fluctuations in income that may arise due to poor health, market fluctuations, and natural calamities. Since most rural poor are dependent on agricultural livelihoods they are automatically the most vulnerable to climate-change induced risks of crop failure and livestock by: 7.

Using panel data for six rural sub‐Saharan Africa countries, this article tests two hypotheses: (i) household‐specific staple food price bands resulting from market failures in the presence of liquidity constraints and rainfed agriculture induces rural household specialisation in food crops as an economic livelihood strategy; (ii) specialisation in food crops yields inferior welfare than Author: Fred Mawunyo Dzanku.

Livelihood diversification and non-farm employment are important levers for rural economic growth. Across developing countries, the success of the Green Revolution led to the idea of a “unimodal” agrarian structure (Tomich et al., ).It was believed that agricultural growth through productivity-enhancing strategies could generate economy-wide growth multipliers, leading to across Author: Prabhu Pingali, Anaka Aiyar, Mathew Abraham, Andaleeb Rahman.

Further, in rural India 70 percent of the population is dependent on agriculture and allied activities as main source of income. Analysis of the farmer’s landholding patterns suggest that small and marginal farmers constitute 85 percent of farming community (owning less than 2 hectares of land) but own only percent of the farm operated.

Livelihood diversification of rural households has long been an important adaptation option in many countries. Ellis () argues that rural households in developing countries diversify their livelihoods due to insufficient income from a single livelihood activity, for example, if farming on their own land does not provide sufficient means for the survival of many rural households.
