Migration Patterns

Migration, Development and Poverty Reduction in Asia

Author : International Organization for Migration (IOM) | 2005

This publication contains the background documents prepared for the Conference, and a summary of the statements made during the Conference deliberations. Together, they offer a wealth of information and advice, issues to consider and means to address them, based on the experiences of those who came together in Lanzhou. I hope that this collection will contribute both to a broader understanding of internal migration and development challenges in Asia, and to practical measures to enable the countries in the region to maximize the benefits of internal migration. We need to learn from successful models, and to build the capacity of policy makers to manage internal migration in ways that contribute to development and poverty reduction.
