The Role of Migration and Remittances in Promoting Livelihoods in Bihar

Author : Priya Deshingkar | 2006
Published By: Overseas Development Institute

The report provides an assessment of migration and remittance pattern in six districts of Bihar covered under the World Bank funded Bihar Rural Livelihoods Project (BRLP)and the IFAD funded Womens' Empowerment and Livelihood Project in the mid-Gangetic Plain (WELPMGP). Although migration through Bihar is well studied, it is however weakly understood in terms of its complexity and diversity and the way it affects different groups of people. The report has offered practical intervention suggestions to maximize returns and minimize the costs associated with migration.
