IDFR Report 2022

Type of documentReport

Every year, 16 June marks the International Day of Family Remittances (IDFR), a universally recognized observance adopted by the Governing Council of the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) on 17 February 2015 and by the United Nations General Assembly (A/RES/72/281) on 12 June 2018. The Day recognizes the contribution of over 200 million migrants who support their 800 million family members through the money they send back home. It aims at raising awareness of the importance of remittances, calling upon governments, private sector entities, as well as civil society, to find ways that can maximize the impact of remittances through individual, and/or collective action.

This campaign report presents a collection of the collaborative effort by relevant stakeholders from across sectors working in the remittance ecosystem to strengthen the commitment the ‘Day’ aims to achieve.
