Practitioners’ Guide to HEA Chapter 1: Introduction to the HEA Framework Introduction to the Household Economy Approach Framework This chapter introduces practitioners to the HEA Framework by defining the basic terms used in HEA and describing the six steps in the analytical process. Special attention is given to providing a background on the origins of the approach, especially in relation to the information demands of decision makers. The reader is taken methodically through the framework components, and time is devoted to explaining what each step of the framework is and why it is necessary. How market analysis fits into the HEA Framework is also introduced. By the end of this chapter, practitioners should be able to define and explain the relationship between the following terms: baseline, livelihood zoning; wealth breakdown, livelihood strategies, outcome analysis, problem specification, coping capacity, projected outcome, survival threshold, livelihood protection threshold, and market assessment.
