There are several aspects of climate-induced short-term or circular migration, especially in combination with other socio-economic factors, that are not fully understood. Without reliable data on the pattern of circular migration, policymakers can not recognise or address migrants’ needs, issues and vulnerabilities.

This paper provides an understanding of what drives migration, the patterns associated with it, its issues and consequences, and provide broader policy recommendations - to use social protection programme to provide safety net to migrants, both at source for family members staying back and at destination.
