This project seeks to fill an important research gap related to migration and remittance patterns at the national and sub-national levels.
The world's population has very recently become predominantly urban, with half the world’s people now living in urban areas.
Future urban growth is expected to largely take place in Asia, Africa and Latin America, much of it in the small cities and towns that lie in or near forests.
It is important to note that the flow of goods, information and ideas between rural and urban spaces is not unidirectional and that flows between urban and rural areas overlap, linking differing sectors and local economies.
