This report aims to offer a better understanding of complex rural migration patterns in sub-Saharan Africa and highlights the important role rural areas will continue to play in shaping the continent’s migration for decades to come.

The atlas Rural Africa in motion. Dynamics and drivers of migration south of the Sahara was published in November 2017. It is the result of a partnership between the French Agricultural Research Centre for International Development (CIRAD) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of United Nations (FAO), with technical support from the Centre for the Study of Governance Innovation (GovInn) in South Africa.

Through a series of maps and in- depth case studies, the 20 authors of the atlas, representing different research institutions, think tanks and international organisations from Africa and outside, explore the complexity of the interrelated causes that drive people in Africa to leave their homes. They shed light on regional migration dynamics and perspectives, and foster understanding of rural migration.

Most Africans are migrating within Africa

The atlas notes that the vast majority of Africans (75 percent) are migrating within Africa, whilst the overwhelming majority of North Africans (about 90 percent) migrate to Europe.
