DEV ODG Logo The School of Development Studies (DEV) at the University of East Anglia (UEA), Norwich, is one of the UK's premier development studies teaching and research institutions. DEV's work covers both the social and natural sciences: from economics,

sociology, gender and politics - to environmental change, fisheries, soil science and agronomy. The Overseas Development Group (ODG), founded in 1967, is a charitable company wholly owned by the University of East Anglia, which handles the consultancy, research, and training undertaken by the faculty members. The DEV/ODG Livelihoods and Wellbeing Research Group has done some excellent work using a livelihoods approach to poverty reduction including on agrarian change, rural household economics, agricultural policies and farming systems research. A strong theme has been livelihood diversification and its implications for strategic thinking about poverty reduction. Recent research and policy work includes livelihood dimensions of risk, vulnerability, migration, rural taxation, and poverty measurement.
