More international migrants have moved between developing countries (38 percent of all international migrants) than from a developing to a developed country (35 percent). The key focus of this annual report of the FAO is rural migration, which constitutes a considerable portion of both internal and international migration flows. It describes different migration flows and highlights how - despite the challenges they present - they are crucial to economic, social and human development.
