GUIDES AND TOOLS LIBRARY
This is a library of open-source guides and tools published by UNCDF to share the methods developed for enabling the flow of digital remittances and the design of migrant-centric products and services. These guides and tools are designed for a variety of audiences, from policymakers to development practitioners to remittance service providers, and are categorized across the four workstreams in which UNCDF operates: enabling policy and regulation, open digital payment ecosystem, inclusive innovation and empowered customers.
Each guide on this page combines experience-based methodologies and tools to structure the application of the methods. The tools are designed to be used in conjunction with the guides but are also linked separately to allow for maximum flexibility in their application.
