Context

The study is centered on identifying in-demand skill development and training programs. The research findings will help possible migrants improve their adaptation strategies to face future climate and migration challenges more systematically. Due to their exposure to occupational risks, agrarian-rural and coastal populations will be prioritized in the survey. The findings will also help the program implementing partners design an appropriate skills training program based on a more precise idea about the demand of such a program.

Objectives

The purpose of the study is to evaluate the demand for a BRAC-designed climate migration program.

Methodology

The study utilizes the quantitative survey method of experimental research.
