Family ties: remittances and support in Puntland and Somaliland | Laura Hammond
- 30 May 2013
Listen to the 29 May 2013 seminar by Dr Laura Hammond (School of Oriental and African Studies), part of the Trinity term 2013 Public Seminar Series
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.
