Impact of the War on Livelihoods - April 2016

The Integrated Assessment examines baseline and preliminary impact of the crisis on local governance, mine action, security, justice and livelihoods to identify immediate early recovery needs to build community-based resilience to ongoing and future shocks.

Families have suffered during this crisis and experienced shocks. When asked if they borrowed any money in the most recent 30 days, 42% of the sample responded positively, more in urban areas than rural. Less women borrowed money, which can either suggest that they lack access to financial services or find alternate means to cope.
