The agriculture sector is a vital part of Sri Lanka’s economy and provides employment for approximately a quarter of the country’s workforce. However, the sector is facing increasing climate risks that affect crop yields, livestock production, livelihoods, health, wellbeing, and lives of smallholder farmers, supply chain actors, and rural communities. This research conducted by SLYCAN Trust aims to identify key indicators to assess and track the resilience of farming households as well as the impact of risk management, risk transfer, and risk finance interventions. These key indicators for livelihood resilience profiles have been developed through a scoping survey, in-depth interviews, and a participatory consultation process.
