Rural Africa in motion - Dynamics and drivers of migration South of the
This Atlas Rural Africa in motion is produced in a context where the challenges associated with large movements of refugees and migrants risk to mask the benefits of migration and its positive aspects. It is important to restate that migration is part of the development process and, as such, migrants have shaped the world we live in. The idea of this Atlas, resulting from the continued and fruitful collaboration between FAO and CIRAD, stems exactly from the need of new analytical tools that can improve our understanding of the complex and heterogeneous patterns and drivers of migration, helping us shape more coordinated and coherent actions. It aims at providing a stimulating overview on migration?s dynamics and drivers in sub-Saharan Africa which will feed the policy debate between local stakeholders, governments and the international community.
