This virtual Global Forum on Remittances, Investment and Development (eGFRID) webinar, hosted by the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) within the framework of the Financial Inclusion Week, will address challenges and opportunities to promote greater digital and financial inclusion for migrants and their family members back home.
Following outcomes drawn at the recent GFRID Summit 2021, and through examples of initiatives on the ground and engagement in global processes, the webinar will also provide recommendations for governments, regulators, the remittance industry and the civil society, to expand access to digital remittance services and to fully exploit their development impact.
The webinar is part of the 2021 campaign to mark the UN International Day of Family Remittances (IDFR), observed each 16 June in recognition of the crucial contribution of migrant workers to the wellbeing of their families back home. The campaign focuses on the theme: “Recovery and resilience through digital and financial inclusion,” to highlight best practices and lessons learned in response to the impact of COVID-19 on remittances.
