Livelihood, Resilience and Migration

This empirically rich study unveils the intricate relationship between climate change, human mobility, and decision-making surrounding livelihoods in the border regions of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD). Delving into the arid and semi-arid lands (ASALs) inhabited by pastoral and agro-pastoral communities, this comprehensive research sheds light on the challenges posed by climate change and its manifestations, including frequent droughts and environmental degradation. Through an in-depth case study conducted in the IGAD Karamoja cross-border cluster, spanning Uganda and Kenya, it features profound insights into the impact of climate change on livelihoods and migration patterns. It provides nuanced perspectives and recommendations on adaptive strategies and the role of both governmental and non-governmental actors in fostering resilience amidst these climatic shifts.
