The authors of this ACF brief focus on seasonality as a key driver of livelihoods among the world's poor. They argue that government programming should take a seasonal perspective, such as scaling up social protection systems in lean periods and pre-stocking health centers with appropriate medicines. They also look at how humanitarian and development sectors can work better together, including with common or aligned funding sources. The brief ends with recommendations for national governments, technical agencies, and donors.
