Outmigration, Development, and Global Environmental Change. A Review and Discussion of Case Studies from the West African Sahel

This working paper gives an overview over literature on emigration from the West Sahel, with a selective focus on resource-dependent livelihoods and how they are connected to outmigration from the Sahel, especially regarding Senegal and Niger. To complete the picture, we also cover some studies on urban population groups and regions beyond the Sahel, although mostly restricted to Africa.
