Research Series Issue 21 - Does relative deprivation induce migration? Evidence from sub-Saharan Africa

marzo 2018
This paper challenges the traditional view that portrays income maximization as the main driver of migration and tests whether relative deprivation and social inequality lead to migration in sub-Saharan Africa. Examining data from the Living Standards Measurements Study – Integrated Surveys in Agriculture (LSMS-ISA) from Tanzania, Ethiopia, Malawi, Nigeria and Uganda, the paper finds that a household’s migration decision is based not only on its well-being status, but also on the position of the household relative to the wealth distribution in the local community. Results indicate that relative deprivation of wealth was positively associated with migration, implying a need to renew the discussion of relative deprivation and social inequality as a cause of migration in sub-Saharan Africa.

Invertir en la población rural del Perú

marzo 2018
A pesar de que en el último decenio el Perú ha hecho grandes avances en la reducción de la pobreza, disminuyendo significativamente la incidencia a nivel nacional de 42,4 % en 2004 a 20,7 % en 2015, para 2016 la brecha entre la pobreza rural y la urbana se había triplicado: 44 % versus 14 %. La desigualdad de ingresos en los hogares peruanos se mantuvo casi estática entre 2004 y 2015. Esta se refleja de manera más aguda en el acceso diferenciado de la población urbana y la rural a los servicios de educación, salud y financieros y a los activos productivos.

Developing nutrition-sensitive value chains in Indonesia

In Indonesia’s eastern Maluku and North Maluku provinces, malnutrition levels are high. Nutrition challenges include monotonous diets with inadequate levels of energy, micronutrients and protein.

This How to Do Note (HTDN) is intended to provide guidance on how to design smallholder agriculture adaptation programmes that consider the differential impacts of climate change on women, men and youth smallholder farmers.
