Migration Digital data Climate change Network effects Health
This project delivers improved statistics on Senegalese emigration through a combination of traditional (typically incomplete and outdated) and digital data; and empirically analyses the role of social networks (estimated using digital data as well) and health as – often overlooked - channels through which climate change may affect migration, thereby controlling for traditional determinants of migration decisions in Senegal.
