This virtual Global Forum on Remittances, Investment and Development (eGFRID) webinar, hosted by the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and the Pan-Africa Postal Union (PAPU), presented opportunities to promote greater digital and financial inclusion for migrants and their family members back home through African postal operators.

Through examples of initiatives on the ground, the webinar paved the way towards the upcoming Global Forum on Remittances, Investment and Development (GFRID) Summit 2023, taking place in Nairobi (Kenya) from 14-16 June, in partnership with the African Union and the UN Office of the Special Adviser on Africa (OSAA).

The webinar saw the participation of renowned experts and practitioners from the field – from both public and private sectors – share their insights, experiences and lessons learned.
