USAID toolkit exploring the connections between livelihoods and conflict; This ""toolkit"" explains the connections between livelihood and conflict and aims to provide USAID missions with access to concrete, practical program options, lessons learned, and information about potential partners, mechanisms and monitoring and evaluation tools for implementing more effective conflict programs. The document concentrates on how violent conflict can affect individual and community access to essential resources and how an approach that focuses on strengthening that access can help people survive and recover from conflict. Livelihoods, or individuals' or households' access to resources is often a primary factor in motivating violence. In some cases, if livelihood support is offered early enough, conflict may be avoided.
