Abstract:

Migrants from sub‐Saharan Africa began to contribute to the development of their home countries as a result of two developments: the cycle of droughts in the 1970s that seriously affected these countries' domestic economies, which are primarily based on agriculture, and the structural adjustment measures initiated in 1981, prescribed by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank, requiring countries to disengage from the agricultural sector and thereby depriving a significant portion of farmers of subsidies and technical support.
