dc.description.abstract The processes and consequences of migration in the context of global environmental change need to better understand gender in terms of migration. Proactive migration (labour migration as a self-insurance mechanism against shocks) has helped prevent long term displacement and ensure survival of households during shock and post -disaster / post -conflict recovery. 91% of remittances-receiving households send their children to school. The presentation suggests that a culture of migration can bring social mobility and positive changes in women’s empowerment. en
