SDG2, zero hunger

#FamilyRemittances2030

End hunger, achieve food security
and improved nutrition
and promote sustainable agriculture

 

 

How remittance families contribute to the goal

  • In rural communities, half of remittances are invested on agriculture-related expenses.
  • Additional income increases receiving households’ demand for food, which increases domestic food production and improves nutrition, particularly among children and the elderly.
  • Investment of migrants’ income in agricultural activities creates employment opportunities.

 

Recommended actions

  • Expand and leverage the ability of remittance families to invest and engage directly in agricultural production, leading to improved food security. This can be achieved by strengthening the capacity of rural financial and non-financial service providers, particularly by promoting services for agricultural production.
