Economic security

Order item

The ICRC's work to promote economic security is intended to ensure that households and communities can cover their unavoidable expenditures and maintain or restore sustainable livelihoods.

This leaflet provides a comprehensive overview of the range of ICRC activities in this area -- from emergency distributions of food and household items to establishing programmes for sustainable food production and micro economic initiatives. It illustrates clearly that food is not enough. Unavoidable expenditures also include shelter, access to health care, education, and taxes, among others.
