Broadcasting UN Entity
Theme: Recovery and Resilience through Digital and Financial Inclusion.
The 16 June marks the International Day of Family Remittances (IDFR), a universally recognized observance adopted by the United Nations General Assembly (A/RES/72/281) in 2018 and previously by the Governing Council of the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) in 2015. The Day recognizes the contribution of over 200 million migrant workers who support their 800 million family members through the remittances they send back home. It aims at raising awareness of the importance of these flows for one billion remittance family members on Earth, and calls upon governments, private sector entities and the civil society, to maximize the impact of remittances through individual, and/or collective action.
