This Synthesis Report compares general livelihood patterns and trends to derive policy implications based on a review of the National Livelihood Baseline Profiles (Zone Narratives) and additional analysis of the Livelihoods Impact Analysis Spreadsheet (LIAS).
Please also take advantage of the Zimbabwe Livelihood Baseline Narratives, which describe the characteristics of each zone and wealth group in greater detail.
Livelihood Baseline provides quantifiable analysis of household livelihood options. It includes a detailed breakdown of food, cash and expenditure patterns, as well as coping capacity for various wealth groups. The baseline also highlights market patterns and constraints and opportunities for economic growth. Used for outcomes analysis, the baselines can quantify and measure the impact of shocks on households. The analysis is very useful in planning humanitarian assistance, particularly in forecasting whether and when assistance will be needed, how many people might be affected, and what types of assistance will be most helpful.
