Culture can be a driving force towards a more inclusive world, by creating job opportunities – including for the most vulnerable – notably through the creative economy and cultural tourism. (...) Such soft power of culture can be unleashed notably through building on the significance of heritage sites and museums, as places of exchange and knowledge that can enable a better understanding of cultural identity and cultural diversity and lead to the appropriation, safeguarding and transmission of cultural and heritage values, identities and memory that can help regain self- confidence and unity. As a critical condition for cultural diversity to flourish, the protection of cultural rights is equally central to sustaining peaceful and inclusive societies, building on existing achievements and mechanisms, notably embedded in the UNESCO Culture Conventions and in strengthening synergies between culture and education.

With every percentage point we reduce the transfer costs, between 4-5 billion dollars remain in the hands of mi- grants and their families. Notably disruptive market innovation, access to mobile technologies of trans- fer as well as market competition and transparency are key factors reducing the costs. (...) By expanding the physical, economic, regulatory and cultural accessibility of financial ser- vices, we can reduce the number of un- or underbanked people, notably women, youth and the rural population and increase the sustainable development impact of financial inclusion. (...) Furthermore, we acknowledge that remittances could be better utilized by recipient households if they are more closely aligned with new financial services and could thereby contribute to increased financial inclusion, notably of women, youth and rural popula- tions. We therefore encourage all actors to facilitate the use of modern technologies and pro- mote financial product innovation, notably by enabling tailor-made, affordable services for mi- grants and their families such as micro-savings and deposit accounts, insurance, credit, green energy solutions or investment products.
