    Characteristics, patterns and drivers of rural migration in Senegal 2020

    Although migratory flows from rural areas are a common phenomenon in most developing countries, we possess little information on their dynamics and determinants. In this context, in September 2017, in the framework of the project “Fostering productive investments to create decent farm and non-farm jobs for rural youth in migration-prone areas in Senegal”, FAO and the Senegalese National Agency of Statistics and Demography (ANSD) conducted a household survey with the aim of generating information on migration phenomena in rural areas. The survey results described in this study contribute to broadening the available knowledge base on the causes and dynamics of rural migration and aim to inform sectoral economic policies, youth employment and rural development policies.

    This brief summarizes the objectives, key deliverables, outputs, results and expected impact of the project "Fostering productive investments to create decent farm and non-farm jobs for rural youth in migration-prone areas of Senegal” (FMM/HLO/115/MUL). The project aims to foster productive investments of migrants' remittances and diaspora funds and hence create decent farm and non-farm jobs, particularly for youth, in order to address the root causes of rural distress migration and harness the development potential of migrants for the rural economy.
