Skills Mapping Through Big Data. A case study of Armenian Diaspora in the United States of America and France

Executive Summary Purpose: To profile the Armenian diaspora in two target countries, the United States and France using “Big Data” mining techniques. Databases are analysed to create demographic and skills profiles containing identifiers such as education level, and field of employment and field of study. To better understand skilled diaspora communities and how they might be reached for development through knowledge transfer initiatives, interviews with key stakeholders, experts, and diaspora members supplement quantitative analysis.

DIASPORA INCLUSION - Harnessing the potential of the African diaspora in sustainable development

Diaspora engagement has generated increasing political interest in recent years. It has been explicitly included in the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration in Objective 19: “Create conditions for migrants and diasporas to fully contribute to sustainable development in all countries”, as well as in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development which recognizes that migration is a powerful driver of sustainable development, for migrants and their communities.

Sub-Regional Study on the Debt of Migrants Assisted with Voluntary Return and its Impact on the Sustainability of Reintegration in Countries of Origin

Migration is often seen as a resource optimization strategy at the individual and family levels. These strategies are meant to respond to a social and economic situation perceived as difficult, unsatisfactory or even precarious. The migratory experience allows to envisage a better future, new socio-economic opportunities and the possibility to better meet the needs of one’s family.

Engaging diasporas in local development: An operational guide based on the experience of Moldova

This guide explains UNDP’s role in, and commitment to, supporting states to leverage diaspora investments in local development, building on the example of Moldova, which between 2015 and 2018 implemented the Migration and Local Development Project (MiDL), funded by the Government of Switzerland. This project was designed to support local governments in Moldova to develop and implement policies, methodologies and procedures related to emigration, and to link them to local development processes.

TOWARDS A COMMON FRAMEWORK FOR MONITORING MIGRANT ECONOMIC CONTRIBUTIONS TO DEVELOPMENT

The global economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has brought significant attention to migrant remittances and the potential impact of a projected decline in their volumes. It is important, however, to recognize that migrants contribute much more, both in financial and indirect ways, to their country of origin (CoO).
