About Migrating out of Poverty
Migrating out of Poverty Research Programme Consortium is funded by the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID). It focuses on the relationship between regional migration, internal migration and poverty and in Africa and Asia.
The goal of Migrating out of Poverty is to maximise the poverty reducing and developmental impacts of migration and minimise the costs and risks of migration for the poor. This includes generating new knowledge related to migration and poverty; creating new datasets and publications; engaging policymakers with key research outcomes on migration and poverty linkages.
Migrating out of Poverty (from 2010 - 2017) worked in partnership with research institutions in Bangladesh, Ghana, Kenya, Singapore and South Africa. In 2017 we are shifting focus to Africa primarily. We continue to work with Ghana and South Africa, and are forging new partnerships in Ethiopia and Senegal. Watch this space for updates.
Day to day coordination of the Migrating out of Poverty partners and research themes is undertaken by the Secretariat with an Executive Board that offers advice and commentary on steps within the research design and dissemination.
Migrating out of Poverty was buillt on the work of the former Development Research Centre on Migration, Globalisation and Poverty
