Climate change impacts are spread across all sectors, and among these one of the most impacted is the agriculture sector. With regular floods and droughts creating adverse impacts on their livelihoods, the farmers are forced to move away to urban areas to find work to support their families.
This research and advocacy project focuses on studying the impacts of climate change on the agriculture-based communities of Trincomalee, and understanding how internal migration impacts this community.
The project also focuses on understanding the impacts of climate change, and internal migration on women and children, the policy changes needed, and the support services to be implemented.
