Study investigated the effect of farmer perceptions of climate change stressors on stressmigration using primary data collected by means of multi-stage sampling technique in 2012 on 120 irrigated upland rice-farming households. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and Heckman Two-Steps probit models. Results showed that drought and flood principally reduced rice yield, led to high crop loss, increased food insecurity and indebtedness and induced farmer stress-migration. Twenty-two percent of the farmers adapted to stress-migration between the years 2007 to 2011.
