Reducing costs and scaling up UK to Africa remittances through technology

The objective of the report is to assess whether the appropriate application of ‘new’ technologies could be leveraged by donors and other development agencies to increase formal remittance flows into Africa and/or reduce the cost of sending money home.

Fragile and conflict-affected states (FCAS) are of particular interest given the importance of remittances to livelihoods and post-conflict development, as well as the exacerbated challenges that are often faced in these jurisdictions.
