This month we take a deep dive on the issue of remittances and how money sent home can be a force for good in rural development. We talk to IFAD’s Financing Facility for Remittances Pedro de Vasconcelos. Also Bibiana Vasquez speaks to regional work on remittances in Africa. And we hear from David Berno an expert on digital remittances. Plus Guillaume Top talks about the power of remittances in Mali.

Then we take the temperature of the agroecology movement with Prof Miguel Altieri. He’s an advocate of sustainable agriculture. Then there’s another scintillating episode in our ongoing miniseries from the Global Donor Platform for Rural Development. Here we talk data with IFAD’s Jo Puri. And also coming up we meet with the latest Recipes for Change Chef - Chef Saeng, from his home in Los Angeles.

This is Farms.Food.Future – a podcast that's Good for You, Good for the Planet and Good for Farmers brought to you by the International Fund for Agricultural Development.
