This product aims to identify livelihood patterns and trends to provide a starting point for early-warning assessments. The Livelihoods Zoning activity in the Republic of Guinea is designed to establish food-security reference points and ultimately to indicate whether the conditions reported at any given time justify more in-depth assessment. It is not sufficient in itself for a full food-security analysis, but the results presented in this report provide a point of departure for estimating how households in the different parts of the country could be affected by various hazards. They supply a geographic context for interpreting existing monitoring data on production, prices, and other indicators in order to identify potential anomalies. Rapid assessment teams may wish to use the livelihood zones as a basis for geographical sampling in their surveys.
Livelihood Zone Description accompanies a zone map, briefly describing the main characteristics of the livelihood patterns in that zone. The maps and descriptions, which identify relevant variables by geography, are useful in informing the development of monitoring systems.
