New report on migration, rural development, poverty and food security
- 11 November 2011
Thomas Lacroix, a Research Associate of the International Migration Institute, has written a report comparing seven country case studies, initiated by the Food and Agriculture Organization to help maximize the benefits of cross-border migration for the pro-poor development of Commonwealth states
The report asks in what ways and to what extent can migration be an instrument to combat rural underdevelopment, poverty and food insecurity in rural areas?
This report is part of a large body of work being carried out by the Commonwealth Foundation, in collaboration with the Ramphal Commission on Migration and Development and in consultation with other bodies, such as the Commonwealth Secretariat, the Oxford Department of International Development, and the International Migration Institute.
