Migration & Development

The Migration and Development projects focus on diaspora and circular migration: knowledge transfer and private sector development through diaspora engagement and diaspora entrepreneurship.

The objective of our global migration and development programmes is to contribute to a better understanding of the links between international migration and development. Our aim is to harness the development potential of migration for the benefit of both societies and to contribute to sustainable development and poverty reduction.

To carry out this vision, we implement projects related to diaspora engagement with the country of origin through knowledge transfer and entrepreneurship.

Currently, we are implementing Connecting Diaspora for Development 2 (CD4D2). Our other diaspora engagement project, Entrepreneurship by Diaspora for Development (ED4D), was successfully completed in 2020.
