      Diaspora Investment to Help Achieve the SDGs in Africa: Prospects and Trends

      Governments and the private sector have traditionally viewed the diaspora as both ongoing providers of financial capital at the micro level, and, as consumers. While recognition of the diaspora’s role in ‘doing development’ has grown, and the diaspora are increasingly seen as important development stakeholders, they are still not viewed as significant social investors by governments, the private sector, or indeed the diaspora themselves. This represents a missed opportunity for harnessing and seeking to scale up diaspora investments for socio-economic growth, especially given the gap in financing available to deliver the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

      We are delighted to announce our paper examining prospects and trends in this field, written by Paul Asquith and Stella Opoku-Owusu has been peer reviewed and is available to download here.
