Abstract: "This paper proposes an extension to the sustainable livelihoods framework by introducing a sixth asset, information capital. Information capital is a critical livelihood asset. Adding information capital as a core asset in the sustainable livelihoods framework promises to improve our understanding of peoples' livelihoods. The paper focuses on the framework area called livelihood assets. It reviews the sustainable livelihood framework particularly the role of capital assets in livelihoods analysis. Information capital is then defined followed by a discussion of why it is important. Finally, case studies drawn from literature and empirical research are cited."
