Agricultural rehabilitation: Mapping the linkages between humanitarian relief, social protection and development
This briefing paper is part of the HPG Policy Briefs Series. It addresses the question of how to support the livelihoods of rural people who have been affected by conflict. Specifically, it focuses on how international actors might move beyond conventional seeds and tools interventions to address vulnerability and support the agricultural component of rural livelihoods in countries emerging from conflict. It examines, both conceptually and practically, how agricultural rehabilitation can contribute to linking humanitarian assistance, social protection and longer-term development. The paper is based on lessons from Afghanistan and Sierra Leone.
