The report starts with background on the
history, scope, and character of displacement in Georgia.
Although there is a lack of comprehensive data on Georgian
internally displaced persons, or IDPs' living
conditions and livelihood status, this section collates what
information exists. Part two defines livelihood support,
maps out the sector as currently implemented in Georgia, and
describes the types of activities in place to boost IDP
employment, production, and enterprise. Part three is
structured around six key challenges that undermine
IDPs' ability to achieve sustainable livelihoods and
improved income. Each challenge is described and where
relevant, examples of current project interventions are
offered. Each challenge is also analyzed to include any
current opportunities for improvement in current practice.
Recommendations for how to enhance or modify approaches to
ensure further success are also included. Part four offers a
summary of additional steps and studies that could further
define a strategic approach to IDP livelihood support. Case
study examples that appear in text boxes illustrate the
review findings in more detail.
