Présentation
This book examines the sustainable impacts of migration and remittance of oversea emigrants in strengthening the ability of their left behind families in Gohatsion town to protect against social-economic discomforts of life. One hundred sixteen emigrants’ families were accessed for questionnaire survey through snowball sampling methods in two kebeles of Gohatsion town. Socio-economic sustainability is measured here by means of its impact indicators, which include income, issue of employment, health, education and asset building in migrant families. The study showed that the significant or sustainable development impacts of migration and remittances primarily depends on conditions of migrant sending households and as well as the migration situation. Migration has been increasing its importance and relevance to the social, economic and environmental dimensions of sustainable development, as well as for its influence on the study area in Gohatsion town in particular. The study suggested that policy makers should design development policies that integrate migration policy more explicitly with in a broader context of economic and social development framework.
