Livelihood Attribute Maps
Livelihood Attribute Mapping involves extracting data from Livelihood zone descriptions and Livelihood Profiles to produce maps that contain key livelihoods information by zone, overlaid with administrative boundaries. Livelihood Attribute Maps provide context to ongoing and emerging food security conditions, inform analysis and monitoring activities, and help answer specific food security questions.
