Rahmatullah .


The present study employs the livelihood strategy conceptual framework to analyze data collected on 150 rural households from the three Integrated Research Sites of BVDP. Households were grouped into four welfare quartiles to identify different livelihood strategies using Principle Component Analysis based on the household assets. Three main livelihood strategies were identified through analyzing the resource availability and income in different welfare quartiles of the sample households. The livelihood strategies identified include: a) Mixed crop livestock farming with more dependence on crop production; b) Agriculture and off farm employment with half of the income from crops and livestock and half from off farm employments; c) The highest welfare quartile were those relatively more dependent on off-farm employment, less on crops and had the least income from livestock
