Migration and adaptation in rural India

Every year, nearly 10 million farmers from India’s dryland regions move temporarily to India’s expanding urban centers.

Why are so many people moving? What does this mean for agriculture in the face of climate change? and does this translate into positive developmental outcomes?

In this project, I explore these aspects through empirical research in South India.

Project dates: June 1 to Aug. 31, 2019
