Global Forum on Food Security and Nutrition (FSN Forum)

Webinars and workshops

Migration, remittances and matching grants

This webinar looked into the role that migration and the flow of remittances can have on the food security and nutrition situation in both countries of origin and those hosting migrants. Participants were introduced to the matching grants approach, which aims to channel remittances into the formal economy and incentivize recipients to use these funds towards agricultural development and poverty reduction. Detailed information was also presented on the use of remittances by households in Tajikistan and lessons learned from a matching grant scheme implemented in the Republic of Moldova and Tajikistan.

In the ensuing question and answer session, participants discussed issues such as the sustainability of such programmes, the disbursement methods for grants of various amounts, and the different incentives that can be used to involve beneficiaries.
