The role of Nigerians in the Diaspora drives increasing interest among a variety of stakeholders in areas such as development, poverty reduction, economic growth, trade or post-crisis (i.e. COVID-19) recovery.
Avenues are continually being sought to increase collaboration between the home country (Nigeria) and Nigerian citizens’ resident outside the country.
The scheduled virtual conference will explore amongst other issues, the potentialities of Diaspora engagement into development, as well as the policy and programmatic options that can be designed in order to maximise these potentials.
The development potential of Diasporas is now largely acknowledged by a wide range of stakeholders. This potential derives from the financial and non-financial resources that Diasporas have accumulated abroad and can mobilise for necessary investments in the home country, Nigeria.
Diaspora resources are not limited to financial assets, but also encompass skills and knowledge that can be applied to mutual developmental benefit.
It is therefore important to encourage and engage continuously Diaspora members who desire to contribute in the development of Nigeria and share their resources in a productive way.
