The Rural-Urban Nexus in Migration and Livelihoods Diversification

A Case Study of East Este Wereda and Bahir Dar Town, Amha

by Abeje Berhanu

The objective of this study is to investigate the linkage between migration and livelihood diversification with emphasis on the socio-economic and structural processes that impact on rural to urban migration. The specific objectives include: to explore the factors affecting rural to urban migration by focusing on household assets and social attachment variables; to examine the different ways by which migration affects rural households' livelihoods and vice versa; to examine rural-urban linkages using migration with the aim of contributing to efforts to understand the migration process in the Amhara region; and to investigate the impact, direct or indirect, of government policy on trends of rural to urban migration in Ethiopia.
