Abstract

The concept of ‘sustainable rural livelihoods’ is increasingly central to the debate about rural development, poverty reduction and environmental management. A livelihood is sustainable if it enables a household to cope with and recover from stress and shocks, maintain or enhance assets and capabilities, and provide extended opportunities for the next generation; and contributes net benefits to other livelihoods at the local and global levels both in the short and long term. This study aims to survey literature dealing with contemporary issues on sustainable rural development in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). The paper argues for a holistic measure aimed at curbing the social inequalities, demographic transition, and environmental problems so as to achieve sustainable development goals.
