This study aims to assess climate variability, livelihood vulnerability and resilience development of rural households in the flood- and drought-prone district of Muzaffargarh in the Punjab province of Pakistan. This study will employ a mixed methods approach via survey questionnaire and face to face interviews of rural households for data collection. For the vulnerability and resilience analysis, the study will develop an integrated framework combining the sustainable livelihood framework and a system dynamics approach. This integrated framework would allow to understand the complex system and its feedbacks that operate between socio-economic systems and environmental system.
