Migration, development and temporary work

The money that temporary workers earn in other countries is undeniably a lifeline for their families back home and, in many cases, for their economies. However, there are also profits in the skills and knowledge that temporary migrants could gain while abroad. If remittances are not invested productively at home, and returning migrants do not share what they have learned, the countries that send so many of their workers abroad stand to lose development gains they might get.
