Livelihoods Analysis  
The main objective of livelihoods analysis is to better able the DPPA and its partners, at Woreda, Zonal, Regional and federal levels to respond in a timely and effective manner to predictable and unpredictable emergencies through an improved emergency needs assessment methodology. Livelihoods analysis gives the DPPA and its partners an improved understanding of the livelihoods and coping strategies of
populations vulnerable to hazards and also the effects of different types of Hazard on people’s livelihoods and food security.

The main Instrument of the baseline study is the Household Economy Approach (HEA) which gives a detailed insight into the ways people in different parts of Ethiopia manage their income and expenditure and how they cope with shocks, including drought, market failure and price changes. The methodology supports the DPPA early warning system by providing a way to better analyze information. Combining the baseline information compiled through the HEA with existing monitoring tools provides an ongoing analysis of emergency needs. It helps to answer the basic emergency response questions: where, who, how much, how many, what, when and how long.
