Abstract

Pays: Senegal
Méthodo: interviews (with experts and on the field)
Echantillon: interviews conducted with migrants: 9 at Kaolack, 3 at St. Louis, 15 at the villages of Ndienne Lagane and Ngoth (RC of Dya) in the Peanut Basin and 4 at Ndiol (RC of Ross Mbethio) in the River Delta. + interview with experts
Var. envi :lack of water, poor soil fertility, salinisation of both soil and water and soil erosion
[…] decreasing soil fertility, lack of rainfall and no possibility to irrigate their fields. This situation leads to an increasing rural
exodus which in turn aggravates the living situation in Senegal’s cities
[…]
Since it proves difficult to separate these problems analytically, I
would conclude that environmental degradation, whether man-made or not, does
play a crucial role, together with other related factors, in the farmer’s decision to
leave. p.42
