This video forms part of a research series that seeks to understand the multiple treatable causes for climate-related migration from the Sahel towards Europe and the role of local political representation through local government in addressing those causes, researchers travelled to the Tambacounda Region in Senegal to speak with locals.

The research series consists of several Working Papers and Reports by the research group led by Prof. Jesse Ribot and Dr Papa Faye. This short film explores some of the key reasons behind the emigration from the perspectives of the locals – market exclusion, low crop prices, lack of social services and inadequate political representation.
