The Livelihood Zone Map for Nigeria is the result of secondary data review and key informant workshops in March and April 2014. A livelihood zone is an area within which people share broadly the same pattern of livelihood, including options for obtaining food and income and market opportunities. A livelihood zoning is essential for the following reasons:

It provides geographic orientation of livelihood systems to inform food security analysis and assistance targeting
It provides the basis for identifying geographically relevant food security monitoring indicators
It provides a sampling frame for future on-the-ground assessments

Livelihood patterns clearly vary from one geographic area to another, which is why the preparation of a Livelihood Zone Map is a logical first step for livelihoods-based analysis.
