Blueprint for Action- Remittances in times of crisis: facing the challenges of COVID-19

Type of documentReport

The Blueprint for Action, developed as a collaborative effort of the Remittance Community Task Force (RCTF) members, contains concrete measures, actions and relevant examples deemed useful for spurring the recovery and the resilience of one billion people involved in remittances in the post-COVID-19 economic environment. These include 200 million migrant workers – half of them women – and 800 million of their family members in low and middle-income countries (LMICs) who rely on remittances. Guidance on implementable policy options is proposed for immediate action as well as for the next 6 to 12 months, as appropriate to national priorities and needs.
