Sowing the seeds for better livelihoods
This project contributes to improving livelihoods of conflict-affected populations in Darfur through the sustainable use of natural resources. Specifically, this means increasing of all aspects of agricultural sector productivity in targeted areas of Wadi El Ku in North Darfur. This is done through rehabilitation and improved management of natural resources, in particular land, vegetation and water.

The four-year project aimed at poverty reduction, sustainable management and restoration of ecosystems in diverse dryland and rangeland areas in four countries: Botswana, Jordan, Mali and Sudan.
The project will contribute to the improvement of the nutritional status of vulnerable populations through innovative and pro-poor Food Security and Livelihoods interventions in five different locations of Myanmar. The dietary intake of vulnerable populations is sustainably and innovatively improved through increased consumption of micronutrient-rich foods/products, and enhanced practices of optimal nutrition and care.
The overall objective of the project is to contribute to the social and economic empowerment of vulnerable young people in Myanmar. The specific objectives are: (1) To strengthen the capacity of 5 Civil Society Organisations to meet the needs of young people; (2) To provide sustainable livelihoods for vulnerable young people; (3) To empower young people to participate in community life and decision making; (4) To reduce stigma and discrimination against marginalised young people.
Livelihoods around the world have improved enormously in the last decades, yet a number of daunting challenges threaten to undo this progress. This new study from the OECD Development Centre highlights the emerging trends which will have a significant impact on livelihoods between now and 2030 and presents possible future scenarios for livelihoods, developed using foresight techniques.
