Special Issue Description

Skills, knowledge, the capacity to work, and good health make up human capital. Of course, being in good health is a goal in and of itself and not just a means to an end. Social capital is a term used to describe the social resources that people use to support themselves, such as affiliations with groups or organizations, ties with persons in positions of authority, or relationships with people who are like them. Relationships based on trust, reciprocity, and exchange that the underprivileged can rely on when they’re in need and that cut down on the expenses of cooperating to produce results. Like human capital, social capital has intrinsic value; good interpersonal relationships serve as both a means and an aim. Natural capital refers to the stocks of natural resources—land, woods, water, air, and so forth—that humans can use to support themselves. Physical capital refers to the tools and facilities that people use to carry out their daily lives. These include systems for transportation and communication, housing, sewage and water systems, and energy. Financial capital includes access to financial services, consistent inflows of cash, and savings of any kind. “The variety and combination of activities and decisions that people make to achieve their life goals” are what is meant by “livelihood strategies.” Different groups of households—both those that are poor and those who are not pursuing various livelihood strategies following their objectives, available resources, and understanding of the possibilities. These methods consider both immediate concerns, such as how to make a living, how to deal with shocks, and how to manage risk, as well as longer-term hopes for the future of one’s children and old life.
