As remittance overtakes international development aid, the diaspora has now become an important player in poverty reduction. And diaspora brings not just money – but also emotional commitment, technologies, and social networks to their countries of origin, and thus can make significant contributions to Sustainable Development Goals.

Under its initiative Diaspora for SDG, IFSD is fostering partnerships with governments, communities, and researchers to spark new thinking on the role of the diaspora in international development.
