Eversole, R, Remittances as a Development Option: Framework of Key Issues, Remittances, Microfinance, and Development: Building the Links, Foundation for Development Cooperation, Judith Shaw (ed), Brisbane, pp. 12 - 25. ISBN 0958672873 (2006) [Research Book Chapter]


This research report presents the findings of an Asia-Pacific study to investigate the potential for remittance-linked financial services to contribute to household well-being and economic development. The six case study countries covered by the study are Fiji, Samoa, Indonesia, the Philippines, Sri Lanka and Timor Leste. Results of this study confirm that remittances clearly make important and growing macroeconomic contributions, but the development dynamic at household level is complex and varied - both among households in the same country, as well as among country contexts.
