An approach for aligning smallholder household incomes measurement
In this webinar, we looked at how to approach measuring smallholder household incomes and the living income gap. The webinar began with a review of the key concepts and consideration points around income measurement, with a spotlight on the Income Measurement FAQ which has been designed to help LiCoP members understand how to approach measuring smallholder household incomes and the living income gap.
Measurement of smallholder incomes and the living income gap is key to understanding and taking action to improve livelihoods. However, smallholder income can be multifaceted and complex, and it is unlikely that any two measurement approaches will be the same. Alignment around measurement can open opportunities for collaborations to scale up interventions.
We then heard about how they theoretical concepts were being put into practice in a baseline study in Ghana. To do this, we explored the purpose of the study, the measurement approach that was taken, and how that decision was made.
