To support and address the difficult realities that remittance families are currently facing in Africa, IFAD launched National Remittances Stakeholders Networks (NRSNs) in a number of countries. Currently set up in The Gambia, Ghana and Senegal, and upcoming in Kenya, Morocco and Uganda, the NRSNs gather representatives of all key national remittance actors: regulators, government, Remittance Service Providers (RSPs) as well as the donors’ community and implementing partners. In each country, members of the NRSNs meet regularly to share updated information concerning the challenges facing by remittance families in the social and economic fallout, and to develop a coordinated and concerted effort to address the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on remittances at national level. The findings will enable specific concerted initiatives to be supported by the EU funded PRIME Africa programme, implemented by IFAD in support of the remittance ecosystem in Africa.
About the Migration Network Hub
What is the Migration Network Hub?
The Hub is a virtual “meeting space” where governments, stakeholders and experts can access and share migration-related information and services. It provides curated content, analysis and information on a variety of topics.
The Hub aims to support UN Member States in the implementation, follow-up and review of the Global Compact for Migration by serving as a repository of existing evidence, practices and initiatives, and facilitating access to knowledge sharing via online discussions, an expert database and demand-driven, tailor-made solutions (launching in 2021).
What content is displayed in the Hub?
The Hub aims to help you find information on migration, ranging from policy briefs and journal articles, existing portals and platforms and what they offer, to infographics and videos. The different types of resources submitted by users undergo peer review by a panel of experts from within the UN and beyond, before being approved for inclusion in the Hub. To provide guidance to users based on findings of the needs assessment, the content is ordered so that more comprehensive and global resources are shown before more specific and regional ones. Know a great resource? Please submit using the links above and your suggestion will be reviewed. Please see the draft criteria for existing practices here.
