Collection description

Rural households living in developing countries are often exposed to multiple stressors that threaten their livelihood system. During the years, numerous policies and programs have being implemented by different international development agencies with the aim of strengthening rural livelihoods. Unfortunately, there are still many rural households characterized by a high brittleness deriving from conditions such as reduced income levels, inadequate adaptation capacity and prominent dependence on natural resources. In light of this, this Ph.D. thesis aim to offer a wide-ranging understanding of the dynamics of development. Particularly, the Sustainable Rural Livelihoods (SRL) framework has been implemented to understand how household livelihood systems may interact with the outside context. This poses significant empirical and methodological challenges, since studies of the interconnections between livelihood resources, livelihood strategies and livelihood outcomes from a quantitative point of view are still limited. The results extend the theoretical understanding of the relationships identified by the SRL framework, and provide empirical evidence about how livelihood resources, livelihood strategies and livelihood outcomes are strictly interconnected. The findings represent a valuable contribution for international development agencies as they offer a better interpretation of the reference context. A better knowledge of the dynamics of development allows the implementation of more targeted development projects and a more effective contribution to improving the livelihood of rural households. All this is pivotal to guarantee the improvement of the adaptive capacity of environmentally dependent households in the developing world.
