Securing sustainable livelihoods is crucial to CCID’s agenda from a human rights perspective.  Most of the target population derives their livelihood from agriculture, split between subsistence and commercial farming. This implies that their well-being can only be improved if they are consistently engaged in gainful agricultural economic practices.

Women and children provide the bulk of family labor and the majority of female farmers live below poverty line as they have limited control and ownership of productive resources as the tradition does not priorities females when it comes to inheritance of land.Youth farmers are not able to achieve economies of scale thus making production and marketing costs very high. Dependency on crops for food and income is exposing families to vulnerability due to hunger.
