Special journal issue: Connections between (changing) rainfall patterns, food and livelihood security, and human mobility (Open Access)
This Climate and Development Special Issue (Volume 6, Issue 1, 2014) entitled Connections
between (changing) rainfall patterns, food and livelihood security, and
human mobility: Evidence and a new analytical framework is guest edited by the Where the Rainfalls project Scientific Director, Dr. Koko Warner and features several UNU-EHS researchers.
presents an analytical framework as well as case studies in Bangladesh,
Ghana, Guatemala, India, Peru, Tanzania and Thailand. Together, the
studies reveal for the first time in a comparable global study distinct
household profiles of “resilience” and “vulnerability” where migration
is a common strategy but its outcomes — be they adaptive or erosive —
depend on the household profiles in terms of income, education, age and
other socio-economic and demographic factors. The Special Issue also
offers insights into the rainfall variability and food security
scenarios that have the greatest potential to drive human mobility in
Tanzania in the next two to three decades.
