Remittances and Diaspora Resources

Since its inception, the Global Knowledge Partnership on Migration and Development (KNOMAD) has spearheaded research and advocacy on harnessing remittances and other resources for the development of origin countries. More recently, KNOMAD prepared the background brief for the preparatory sessions of the GCM, and many of the recommendations of the paper are included in the GCM objectives 19 (create conditions for migrants and diasporas to fully contribute to sustainable development in all countries) and objective 20 (Promote faster, safer and cheaper transfer of remittances and foster financial inclusion of migrants).
