    Abstract

    The scientific findings clearly provide evidence of changing rainfall patterns in the study area, which lead to increasing risks to the livelihoods and food security of the affected population. It was further found that landless, low-skilled and poor households are most sensitive to rainfall variabilty. In the study area, migration is a major coping strategy to address unfavourable economic and unexpected environmental conditions
