    Abstract Rural households adopt several measures in order to deal with climate variations and related environmental damages. This paper discusses migration as an adaptation to climate change and the potentials that this could hold for Green Small and Medium Enterprises (G-SMEs) development and rural livelihoods improvement. The research was carried out using the farming and rural systems approach in the rural areas of Nigeria. The results suggest that failing to give attention to the implications of climate change-induced migration could pose a developmental challenge. This therefore requires various policy options including those that favour the development and establishment of green SMEs to meet the needs of farm families in different socio-economic contexts.
