An interconnected global economy has increasingly provided new sources of development funding from a diverse range of actors, resulting in a proliferation of new donors, in addition to increased private investment, remittances, and philanthropy.

How can the significant financial and intellectual resources associated with remittances and migrant flows be harnessed for development?
