This brief brings together insights from a cross-country comparative study exploring the effects of rural outmigration on smallholder farm households in Eastern Kenya and the Central Plateau of Burkina Faso. It sheds light on the context-dependent nature of migration and how different types of migration can have different effects on gendered labour relations and household capacities to invest in farming and manage the farm.
