Gender and remittances from internal migrants

Gender and remittances from internal migrants
Name:Gender and remittances from internal migrants

This research explores gender differences in remittance-sending behaviour, gender differences in income management of migrants, gender differences in access to and utilization of remittance-sending services and channels, and the relationship between gender and the management and utilization of remittances at the home and the community of origin. The research findings are based on 600 male and female migrants surveyed and 42 IDIs and 12 FGDs conducted between April and May 2010 in three wards of central Hanoi, Viet Nam. This study will contribute to bridging the current research gap and provides a much needed data set from which gender sensitive policies and programmes can be developed. The research aims to strengthen the potential of internal remittances to maximize the development of internal migrants, their families and their communities and to contribute to policy and programmes that support gender-sensitive socio-economic development in rural Viet Nam.

This research is part of the Joint Programme on Gender Equality (JPGE), jointly implemented by the Government of Viet Nam and the United Nations in Viet Nam. The programme and this research were generously financed by the Spanish-funded Millennium Development Goals Achievement Fund (MDG-F). The General Statistics Office (GSO), with technical assistance from the International Organization for Migration (IOM) Viet Nam, took the lead in the implementation of this research.
