    This working paper is the update of an earlier cross-country study on household income sources using an expanded harmonized dataset. The analysis presented covers a total of 93 surveys representing 41 countries – nearly double that of the previous study – to depict rural and urban households’ livelihood strategies across different levels of economic development. The findings shed light on the relationship between household livelihood activity portfolios and per capita gross domestic product, confirming a picture of multiple livelihood activities across the rural and urban space, at different levels of development. However, we find an emerging divergence between countries from sub-Saharan Africa and those from the rest of the world regarding employment and income generation.

    Crafts and cottage industries can provide a source of sustainable employment in rural communities. For centuries the Central Asian region has been known for its attractive craft products, such as hand woven carpets, wooden carvings, metal works, textiles, and many other. However, a number of problems still hamper the further development of this sector. The FAO Regional Office for Europe and Central Asia supported a study to review the rural crafts sector in three countries of the Central Asian region (Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan) and proposed policy recommendations. To implement the recommendations of the study, the FAO Regional Office for Europe and Central Asia initiated a pilot project, jointly with the Central Asian Crafts Support Association's Resource Center in Kyrgyzstan public foundation (CACSARC-kg), and organized and conducted four 10-day trainings for rural women in two remote areas of Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan in 2017 - 2018. This catalogue presents the resulting products of these trainings.
