Living income benchmarks provide a tangible goal for the improvement of incomes, however measuring and understanding the current income situation of farmers remains a persistent challenge. Conceived in the humanitarian aid sector, the Household Economy Analysis (HEA) provides a robust framework that could be leveraged for understanding actual incomes, and also offers potential for modelling farm economics to inform decision making.
