The relationship between livelihoods and food security is complex and is influenced by a wide variety of factors that vary in importance across contexts and over time. This document presents a conceptual framework for integrating sustainable, market-driven livelihood strengthening into food security interventions. The purpose of the conceptual framework is to provide a common frame of reference for clarifying and communicating important concepts related to livelihoods and food security, and their relationship with each other, among donors and practitioners.
