Somali refugee children attend class in Kobe camp, Ethiopia.

Laura Hammond shares the findings of a research project recently completed with the FAO Food Security and Nutrition Assessment Unit in Somalia, in which more than 700 households in urban and rural areas were interviewed to find out about how they use remittance support and how resources are shared between better-off and poorer households. This provided new information on the extent to which rural households are involved in the remittance economy and the vulnerabilities inherent in the system.
