The query of this study is to get a scenario on the perceptions of the women about how their livelihoods have been affected due to climate change. The broader research question of this study is: What do the women say about the economic vulnerabilities of their livelihood due to climate change? The adverse effects of the vulnerability of the women’s livelihoods have been investigated in the light of the livelihood framework. This research approach was dominantly qualitative, rooted in adetailed analysis of interview texts andgroundedinabroadercontextualisation of the vulnerable women’s socio-economic, cultural, and political situation based on the livelihood framework. This research found that most women are socially and economically vulnerable due to climate-induced migration. Though their income level rises, their livelihood expenditure, especially in the case of health expenditure, rises simultaneously. However, the most alarming issue about those women is that they become socially vulnerable and have no social security. Their children mostly do not get any form of education. Food, sanitation, and social security have worsened compared to the past.
