Incorporating diaspora contributions into development strategies

Development can be defined in a broad sense of sustainable economic growth, poverty reduction, social advancement, human empowerment and socio-economic equity. Individual or collective initiatives within a diasporic community can contribute to one or more of these goals. However, the sentimental attachment diasporas may harbour for their countries of birth may not automatically engender mutually beneficial outcomes. For this to occur, appropriate and timely policies need to be in place to recognize and harness the potential contributions by and beneficial interaction with diasporas in support of development and growth in both their home and host countries.
