Examining convergence perspectives in transforming Philippine livelihood strategies and pathways

Livelihood perspectives have become a central component in the development discourse and are now widely pronounced in the usual menu of development interventions. However, one of the critical gaps in livelihood implementation, especially in the Philippine experience, is the realization of the convergence of efforts of different actors to better ensure growth and sustainability. With the present social and economic conditions of the ongoing COVID19 crisis, recovery strategies have emphasized the importance of convergence in pursuing government initiatives (e.g., startups, micro and small enterprises, and cooperatives), specifically in transitioning to the new normal.
