This volume of the SOIL Report discusses the current debates in the livelihoods sector, livelihoods of the poor and how they are making both ends meet and the policies and plans on livelihoods. Further, it takes stock of the progress and development in the past one year in flagship programmes for poverty reduction through livelihoods enhancement and the growing importance of CSR in livelihoods promotion of poor. With the shrinking space of NGOs and the increasing importance of the government and the private sector, the Report also takes a look at the changing role of civil society and the emphasis on the State as a livelihoods promoter.
