This working paper considers the climate vulnerability of rural agricultural livelihoods in semi-arid regions of Pakistan. The study looks at how vulnerable such livelihoods are to climate change and climate impacts and how migration can be supported as an adaptation strategy if these livelihoods continue to be threatened by climate risks.
