Welcome to Sustainable Livelihood Consultants

We are a private-sector livelihoods development organisation based in Cape Town, South Africa that provides specialist expertise on the task of eliminating poverty, social inequality and human injustice through policy and programmes on the African continent.

Sustainable Livelihood Consultants (SLC) works independently for governments, donors, non-state actors and private organisations. We provide a creative approach to livelihoods development challenges through conducting state-of-the-art social,economic and environmental research. In understanding development challenges, we go beyond conventional wisdom, carrying out original research to obtain primary evidence of people’s needs and recommending actions to improve their livelihoods.

Drawing on our accumulated knowledge of livelihoods development, we offer advisory services on good development practice and specialist training in our core competencies.
