Migration And Land Tenure Changes In The Central Cotton Basin Of Côte D'Ivoire

December, 2022

Migration dynamics have always been at the heart of Ivorian agricultural development. From the colonial era to the present day, the areas of departure have remained virtually unchanged, but the areas of arrival have been modified. The objective of this study is to show the impacts of the dynamics of Senufo cotton migrations on access to land in the central Ivorian cotton basin. After a survey conducted in 23 villages in the sub-prefectures of Tiéningboué and Marandallah, it emerged that migration to the central Ivorian cotton basin is motivated by cotton cultivation.

This study analyses the effect of Kazakhstan’s 2003–2005 agricultural land reform on land rental and credit market participation.
