Publication Overview/Description

Climate change is increasing the risk to coastal communities in Pakistan. It takes the form of extreme events such as intense storms, floods, coastal erosion, and rising sea levels.

Due to socioeconomic and political factors, people are more vulnerable to these hazards today; disasters have a compounding effect, causing significant land and livelihood loss and ultimately resulting in displacement.�

Pearl farming can be considered a viable alternate livelihood for these coastal communities to build back better. As part of the CARE for South Asia project, the concept of pearl farming is thus being introduced to the country for the first time.
