Migration and Remittances
migration – the movement of people across international boundaries –
has enormous implications for growth and poverty alleviation in both
origin and destination countries.
to the United Nations, more than 230 million people were living outside
of their countries of birth in 2013, and over 700 million migrate
within their countries. In the coming decades, demographic forces,
globalization and climate change will increase migration pressures both
within and across borders.
