This project focuses on Impact of rural-urban migration on the economy of the rural environment of Kano state. It is very clear that the poor economic condition and productive system of the villages as well as the poverty-stricken population are all implications of the unfortunate phenomenon of rural-urban migration, which is persistent in the area. However, to curtail and control rural-urban migration, policies and their implementation have to be made. It is no doubt that the rural economy depends on agriculture. Government should encourage mechanized and plantation agriculture within the rural areas to improve the economy of the rural areas and encourage the inhabitants to stay home and work. This will also serve as an employment opportunity for the population and as well as boost the commercial activities of the area. Another major step which could discourage rural-urban migration in the country is sitting and establishing small-scale industries (cottage industries) in the rural areas, this will go along away in solving the problem of unemployment. Apart from the provision of job opportunities, some essential services should also be provided in the rural areas. Such amenities include good transport facilities, health, water and stable electricity.
