Phase II: COVID-19 Crisis Through a Migration Lens
As the #COVID19 pandemic and economic crisis continues to spread, the amount of money migrant workers send home is projected to decline 14% by 2021 compared to the pre COVID19 levels in 2019, according to the latest Migration and Development Brief.
Instead of a sharp decline in 2020 followed by an increase in 2021 that we predicted in April, we are now looking at a much more gradual fall extending into 2021. By the end of 2021, we expect remittances to fall by about 14% compared to the pre-Covid-19 record levels of 2019.
KNOMAD is addressing gaps and quality issues regarding data on migration and remittances by researching, collecting and publishing global data to enable more effective engagement on migration and development.
