  2. 2. Introduction & objectives It is generally perceived that poverty levels have been remaining persistently high in rural areas of Eastern Africa. However, many discussions focus less on • structure and dynamics of poverty, • the contribution of various livelihood sources in combating poverty and • how poverty dynamics affect livelihoods. Standardised surveys for wide application.

Wote, Kenya, n=160 Market access to Nairobi Rapid expansion of off farm opportunities Rakai, Uganda, n=129 Natural resource base particularly important; few market and off farm opportunities Nyando, Kenya, n=161 Dry climate, various value chain initiatives and off farm opportunities Lushoto, Tanzania, n=147 Market access to Dar es Salaam, vegetable sales booming. Livestock and cattle highly valued. Hammond et al in prep. Study sites 4 study sites, 2 rounds (2012 & 2015/17), 597 households, randomly selected within 10km x 10km research blocks
