Remittances and Vulnerability in Somalia

Remittances and Vulnerability in Somalia

The importance of remittances to the household economy across Somalia is well-recognized.

This briefing outlines the key features and the marked variations of the remittance landscape in Somalia. It also analyses how remittances are used by families to improve food security, particularly through access to credit.
