SHARE HOW YOU ARE TAKING ACTION to support remittance families build resilience in times of crisis and inspire others

We are particularly eager to hear from:

The private sector – How remittance service providers (RSPs) are maintaining continuity of services, and how they are adapting to make financial services more accessible and affordable to migrants and their families

The public sector – How policy makers and regulators are mitigating the effects of the crisis on family remittances and specifically how they are linking financial inclusion and remittances to benefit migrant workers and their families

The civil society – How diaspora organizations and migrants´ associations are raising awareness of the contribution of remittance families to local development, and providing support through the crisis

To share your achievements, current initiatives and ideas, send an email to familyremittances@ifad.org. We will help you disseminate them.
