​The aim of this initiative was to collect, analyse and present information about migrant remittances from Portugal and South Africa to Angola, and their use by the beneficiaries in Angola. The analysis includes a study of the impacts of remittances on migrant-sending households, and documents some policies and practices affecting remittance flows between Portugal, South Africa and Angola. The study also talks about the socio-economic profile of the Angolan diaspora in Portugal and South Africa, and strategies to enhance the development impact of remittances in Angola.
