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.
It 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.
