Sustainable Livelihoods

Sustainable Livelihoods encompasses the socio-cultural dimensions of food and water security, through developing sustainability within agriculture, fisheries, and tourism systems. The emphasis is on social dimensions to enhance human well-being. This focus aligns with United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 8 for diverse, innovative growth enterprises to support job creation in decent safe working environments. It does so to contribute to SDG 10, to reduce inequalities including those of gender, economic disparity, race, and societal disadvantages associated with indigenous communities and ethnic minorities. This theme is underpinned by considerations of SDG 17 to strengthen cooperation across sectors and across countries in pursuit of sustainability.
