dc.description.abstract Community-level assets, such as environmental conditions (elevation, rainfall, soil quality), distance to natural resources (forest, wetlands) and distance to services (markets, hospitals) are a significant component of rural livelihoods. This paper argues that common-pool resources (community capitals) should be differentiated from private goods (household capitals) within the Sustainable Livelihoods Framework, as they operate under different dynamics of decision-making and management. It presents methods for differentiating household capital from community assets, identifies patterns in their spatial distribution and analyzes their interactions. Results of the project show that households trade their natural assets to cope with environmental shocks such as cyclones and flooding. en
