Cultivating New Local Futures: Remittance Economies and Land-use Patterns in Ifugao, Philippines

McKay, Deirdre

Description

In the Philippines, female migration for contract domestic work transforms the local landscape. The changes in land, labour, crops and cropping patterns that are occurring may not reflect local ecology or economic opportunity as much as they represent gendered versions of new local futures, envisioned on a new global scale.
