GFRID Summit 2021

16-17 June 2021, Online, #GFRID

Summary proceeding released!

The International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) would like to thank all the speakers and attendees who have contributed to the success of the Global Forum on Remittances, Investment and Development (GFRID) – Summit 2021, that took place virtually on 16 and 17 June 2021 on the occasion of the International Day of Family Remittances (IDFR).

The 2021 virtual Summit focused on the role of remittances to strengthen market recovery amidst the current global pandemic, and to improve the resilience of migrant workers and the communities where they live. In particular, the Summit represented a multi-stakeholder platform to share and analyze practical strategies and mechanisms related to digital and financial inclusion for migrants and their families.

The Summit saw the observance of the UN-adopted International Day of Family Remittances (IDFR), in recognition of the tireless abnegation of over 200 million migrant workers who send money home for the wellbeing of their families in communities of origin, and who have demonstrated unprecedented resilience in these times of crisis.

The 10 panels were followed by a total of 682 participants, coming from 96 countries.

In the following section, please find the recordings in English, French and Spanish, as well as the presentations and video messages next to the corresponding speaker.
