Migration & Development

The Migration & Development Unit focuses on diaspora engagement: knowledge transfer, private sector development through entrepreneurship and job creation.

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 mapping, diaspora engagement with the country of origin through knowledge transfer and entrepreneurship and projects aimed at youth employment.

Currently, we are implementing four Migration & Development projects: Connecting Diaspora for Development (CD4D), Entrepreneurship by Diaspora for Development (ED4D), Work in Progress! (WiP!) and Mapping Diaspora.
