    Abstract

    The scientific findings show that migration is one of the most important strategies employed by the residents of the study sites to cope with rainfall variability and food insecurity. Nevertheless, it was also found that migration does not increase resilience or provide better long-term options; it rather is a last resort for resource-poor and landless households.
