    The scientific findings show that migration takes place to improve livelihood and access to food. Important triggers of household migration are crop production decline, rainy season shifts, unemployment, and others. Further, the researchers found that the high dependence on rain-fed agriculture in Nadowli District contributes to continued reliance on seasonal migration as a coping strategy.
