The ‘Leveraging Remittances and Diaspora Investment for Climate Resilient Development Impact’ consultation in the context of the Sustainability, Stability and Security (3S) Initiative in Africa took place in 17-18 January 2024 at IFAD headquarters in Rome, Italy.
IFAD and UNCCD partnered to contribute to the Sustainability, Stability and Security (3S) Initiative in Africa. This partnership enables rural remittance families and their communities to build climate resilience and improve sustainable land management, thereby enhancing livelihoods, food and water security, rural youth employment, and reducing the incentives for migration due to climate change.
The event lasted for two days. Day 1 consisted of a sequence of technical panels, relevant studies, and surveys, followed by the presentation of the 3S Initiative approach and open consultation. Speakers are global experts and practitioners from both public and private sectors, shared their insights, experiences and lessons learned. Day 2 was entirely dedicated to the consultation with the Member States.
