Livelihood Advisory

CIG is a recognised leader in the field of livelihood advisory, drawing on our wealth of global experience and expertise to inform a profound understanding of the impacts that projects have on people’s livelihoods.

Our advisory services are designed to enhance our clients’ capacity from the outset, equipping them to develop projects that prevent the displacement of people and safeguard access to vital resources essential for livelihoods. In situations where displacement is unavoidable, we guide our clients in formulating people-centred strategies that establish the necessary conditions for sustainable livelihoods and are delivered through effective partnerships. Our approach to Livelihood Restoration Planning (LRP) prioritises the wellbeing of those impacted by a project or programme, through ongoing dialogue and agreement-making with them.

Our approach is realistic and practical and is founded upon the utmost respect for human rights. Learn More
