Die Rolle von Institutionen auf der lokalen Ebene für die Förderung nachhaltiger Lebensgrundlagen in ländlichen Räumen Äthiopiens
Beginn: 01/2003
Ende: 12/2004

This research project aims at investigating households livelihood strategies in marginal areas of Ethiopia. The basic hypothesis of this research is based on the assumption that the problems of natural resource degradation and poverty in rural Ethiopia are fundamentally problems of institutional failures (both in terms of inadequately defined property rights and problems of governance) that have constrained the capabilities of rural households to effectively channel their asset (natural, human, physical, financial/economic, social/political capital) endowments towards enhancing sustainable livelihoods. The results are expected to sensitise policy makers and development agents, including NGOs, about the linkage between micro and macro policies, entitlements and sustainability of rural livelihoods.
