Senegal: the fluidity of internal migration as an answer to local constraints

Ba C.O., Bourgoin J., Diop D.. 2017. In : Mercandalli Sara (ed.), Losch Bruno (ed.). Rural Africa in motion. Dynamics and drivers of migration South of the Sahara. Rome : FAO; CIRAD, p. 32-33.

Since the late 1990s, internal migration in Senegal has significantly increased. Several factors contribute to add complexity, such as the combined impact of population growth and underemployment, the progressive degradation of the natural resources, and restrictions to international movements. This trend of internal migration, which is the result of a broader structural crisis, is reshaping the national space, calling for a territorial redistribution around regional development hubs.
