The webinar will be the occasion to launch the International Day of Family Remittances (IDFR) Campaign 2023-2024 on “Digital remittances towards financial inclusion and cost reduction”, and set the stage for the upcoming Global Forum on Remittances, Investment and Development (GFRID) Summit 2023.

Through two dedicated sessions, this GCM Talk seeks to explore how engaging migrants and diaspora, and utilizing new remittance technologies combined with tailored financial products for migrants and their families can contribute to financing the funding gap for the SDGs by 2030. The objectives of this webinar are to:

  • Lay out the current dialogue on remittances and diaspora investment in advance of the GFRID Summit 2023;
  • Engage the Member States and all relevant stakeholders in the campaign building up to the 16 June IDFR; and
  • Highlight and explore ways to strengthen Member States’ commitments on GCM objectives 19 and 20 and their link with the sustainable development framework of the 2030 Agenda.
