TOWARDS A DECENT STANDARD OF LIVING FOR SMALLHOLDER FARMERS

This community of practice builds on the work of the Global Living Wage Coalition.

ABOUT

The Living Income Community of Practice is an alliance of partners dedicated to the vision of thriving, economically stable, rural communities linked to global food and agricultural supply chains. The goal of this community is to support activities focused on improving smallholder incomes towards living incomes, aiming to enable smallholder farmers to achieve a decent standard of living.  This community is a result of a partnership between The Sustainable Food LabGIZ and the ISEAL Alliance.

The objectives of this Community of Practice are to:

  • Increase understanding of living income measurement and the income gap

  • Identify and discuss strategies for closing the income gap

"Living Income is the net annual income required for a household in a particular place to afford a decent standard of living for all members of that household."
