Displaced Livelihoods Initiative (DLI)
Displacement is at an all-time high and is projected to climb in the coming decades, pushing the international donor, practitioner, and researcher communities to seek more cost-effective, long-term solutions to displacement. This has led to an increased effort to strengthen livelihoods, self-reliance, and economic inclusion. More evidence is needed, however, about what interventions best support sustainable livelihoods for displaced populations and host communities, and at what cost.
The IKEA Foundation is supporting J-PAL and Innovations for Poverty Action (IPA) to generate and share new evidence on the impacts of livelihoods programs for displaced populations and host communities. Under this initiative, IPA and J-PAL manage calls for proposals, form partnerships with displacement actors and researchers, and support the translation of funded research into policy and practice. Ultimately, research supported by the Initiative will support the design of better policies and programs to enable refugees and others forced to flee to rebuild their lives.
