Abstract

The 'Sustainable Livelihoods Approach' (SLA) has been widely used in recent development programmes that aim to reduce poverty and vulnerability in less developed countries. The approach also focuses on policy design and development interventions to reduce poverty in developing countries. It takes into account the poor as the centre of the development process and embraces the complexity of rural livelihoods from the perspective of the poor. People can achieve either a viable, sustainable livelihood outcome or a fragile, unsustainable one due to the availability of assets to them and the impacts of vulnerability factors and transforming structures and processes on the access to and use of assets. In the present study, an attempt has been made to general discuss of the sustainable livelihood approach. It is concluded poor people have improved their socio-economic well being through sustainable livelihood framework.
