Back to search results
Remittances have become an important sources of income and livelihood for many poorer communities in the Asia Pacific. However, evidence for improvements to life and livelihoods, particularly for women at the local level, is unclear. This research investigates the impacts of remittance economics (eg in Nepal and a Pacific place). It critically analyses the social and environmental implications of payments using socio-cultural analyses to unpack the vagaries and unevenness of remittance economies, at the local level. It will generate evidence to rethink global and national remittance policies around the developing world.
