Study on remittance flows among refugees

Jun 30, 2018 | UNHCR, UNCDF | UNHCR

To gain a better understanding of the remittances flows among refugees and other forcibly displaced, UNHCR and UNCDF undertook a research using existing data sources that may have not been analyzed so far in context of displacement. The desk-review focuses on the remittance flows and key corridors, and – whenever data was available – provides information also on average costs, service providers, and payment instruments for sending and receiving remittances. The 23 countries selected for the analysis are UNHCR CRRF and World Bank IDA countries. The review complements the in-depth qualitative country assessments on remittances within the refugee context that have been initiated by UNHCR and UNCDF in these same countries.
