ASAL is using a comprehensive approach that addresses economic, social, and cultural barriers, as well as providing access to basic services and resources. It achieves its mandate through the following:
- Providing education and skills training: Many IDPs may lack the skills or education needed to find employment and improve their income. Offering training and education programs in areas such as vocational skills, entrepreneurship, and financial management can help IDPs become more self-sufficient.
- Providing access to credit and financial services: Lack of access to credit and financial services can be a major barrier to improving livelihoods for IDPs. Offering microfinance programs and other financial services can help IDPs start or grow their businesses, invest in education or housing, and become more financially stable.
- Improving access to basic services: Access to basic services such as healthcare, clean water, and sanitation can have a significant impact on the livelihoods of IDPs. Providing these services can help IDPs stay healthy and productive, and reduce their vulnerability to poverty.
- Addressing social and cultural barriers: Social and cultural barriers, such as discrimination or lack of access to land and property, can make it difficult for IDPs to improve their livelihoods. Addressing these barriers can help IDPs gain equal access to opportunities and resources.
