October, 17-19 Nairobi, Kenya The Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Meeting on Remittances was born as a joint initiative of the ACP-EU Migration Action and the African Institute of Remittances (AIR). This peer exchange had the aim of informing the Action’s stakeholders on positive initiatives on remittances, to exchange on challenges, lessons learned and good practices identified through the implementation of activities of the Action, as well as to follow-up and discuss the joint ACP and EU Dialogue Recommendations, and to pursue a more in-depth dialogue on remittances and the challenges that need to be addressed to reduce remittances transfer costs. Disucssions on the P2P meeting were structured into three thematic areas: (1) Remittances as investment – Engaging Migrants and the Formal Sector; (2) Addressing Obstacles in Remittances and (3) New Technologies – Mobile Money Overcoming Borders.
