Livelihood vulnerability and adaptation in Kolar District, Karnataka, India: a short report
In India, ASSAR is exploring differential vulnerability and adaptive responses. In the largely semi-arid state of Karnataka in South India, we are examining how climatic, socio-economic, infrastructural and biophysical changes are driving livelihood vulnerability in rural and urban areas. Focussing on migration as a key livelihood strategy to address vulnerability, and one that spans the rural-urban continuum, we conducted research in the Kolar District. Here we describe our findings.
