In 2015 FEG carried out three household economy analysis (HEA) baselines in Peru for Practical Action, to develop the livelihoods component of its flood resilience programming. The assessments took place in the urban areas of the Rio Rimac watershed just east of Lima and the peri-urban areas of Chulucanas and Piura towns. FEG facilitated the training of eleven interviewers in HEA data collection methods and analysis. Additionally, FEG trained core Practical Action staff to use the baseline data to carry out scenario development and forecast modeling. The results from the assessments helped Practical Action to understand the livelihoods strategies which populations at risk use to survive, and the vulnerability of these strategies to shocks, such as flooding. Practical Action is part of the Flood Resilience Alliance whose members are producing data from a range of sources to build a comprehensive picture of resilience that will be incorporated into Zurich Insurance Company’s resilience measurement tool. The HEA baselines are a part of this and will also be used to monitor and measure household livelihoods in urban areas, which will inform the Alliance’s resilience learning and evaluation agenda.
