Improving our understanding of migration and remittances in Sub-Saharan Africa
The catalog provides open and free access to data collected through the Migration and Remittances Household Surveys implemented under the Africa Migration Project.
The project was undertaken jointly by the African Development Bank (AfDB) and the World Bank. It seeks to improve our understanding of migration and remittances in Sub-Saharan Africa, including their magnitude, causes, and impacts on poverty reduction, with a view to generating informed policy recommendations. It also seeks to strengthen the capacity of policy makers, researchers, financial institutions and donor agencies in Africa to enhance the development impact of migration and remittances in Africa.
Through research, a survey, analysis and consultation, the project has generated the first comprehensive body of information on migration and remittances in Africa.
The project has received financial support from the African Development Bank (AfDB), Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), Department of International Development (DFID), International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark, French Ministry of Immigration, Integration, National Identity and Development Partnership, and the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA).
