Livelihoods Connect is one in a family of Knowledge Services based at the Institute of Development Studies. Livelihoods Connect has two main strands of work. The first is a website within which they summarise and host documents relating to the livelihoods approaches through a variety of themes, including conservation and biodiversity. The second is the Network, which allows professionals and researchers in the field of livelihoods to communicate with one another. At present there are over 200 members, worldwide, split evenly between the global north and south.
