Where the Rain Falls : Climate change, food and livelihood security and migration

United Nations University Institute for Environment and Human Security (UNU-EHS),November, 2012

The central focus of this study was to explore the circumstances under which households in eight case study sites in Latin America, Africa, and Asia use migration as a risk management strategy when faced with rainfall variability and food and livelihood insecurity. In conducting the field research, three complementary methodologies were applied : Participatory Research Approaches (PRA), a household (HH) survey in the research communities, and interviews with various experts in the respective countries.
