The purpose of this study was to understand the impact of the Chars Livelihoods Programme (CLP) on the food security of core participant households and whether the impact is sustainable. Improving food security on the chars is a key objective for the CLP. In this study, food security is broken down into three pillars: Access, Availability, and Utilisation. The study also explores how seasonality affects some indicators (stability).
The study found that households have significantly better food security after receiving CLP support and this impact sustains beyond the programme.
