Where are the Flows? Exploring Barriers to Remittances in sub-Saharan Africa

As part of FSD Africa’s Risk, Remittance and Integrity (RRI) Programme, Cenfri is producing a seven-part study series which seeks to provide an overview of the remittances market, gaps and barriers in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), conclude on what is required to reduce supply-side barriers and enable the formal market to fulfill its true potential.

The study is organised as follows:

Volume 1 provides an overview of key remittance corridors in SSA, from the perspective of both the receiving and sending countries. It analyses the correlation between migration and remittances and introduces a categorisation of countries.
