The GFRID allows cross-sector stakeholders to share experiences, expertise and to continuously feed the ongoing debate on the importance of remittances for sustainable development. In response to global commitments such as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG 10.c in particular, on lowering the cost of remittance transactions to 3 per cent), the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration, the GFRID is highly involved in contributing to global networks by providing solutions, examples and roadmaps for implementation.
