Paper presented at the World Conference on Humanitarian Studies in Istanbul, October 24, 2013.

Evidence from case studies around the world shows that the application of livelihoods-based standards can improve the quality and timeliness of humanitarian response during and after a crisis. These standards provide tools and frameworks for the protection of livelihood assets and the redevelopment of livelihood strategies during and after a crisis. They also contribute to the debate among practitioners about the importance of livelihoods in humanitarian response.
