Connecting Diaspora for Development (CD4D)

In autumn 2019, IOM Netherlands started the Connecting Diaspora for Development (CD4D) programme to support diaspora leaders to engage with their country of origin specifically in Afghanistan, Iraq, Sierra Leone, Somalia, and Ethiopia. The project has managed to stimulate collaboration between diaspora experts and representatives of host institutions. This programme is important to build bridges between societies and introduce new knowledge, innovation, values, business and more from diaspora members to their country of origin.
