Event Summary

The United Nations University Office at the United Nations is organizing an event as part of the UNU Midday Forum Series entitled "Realizing the Development Potential of Diasporas". 
 This event will focus on the much claimed but little studied proposition that the contribution of Diasporas to sending economies extends well beyond the remittance flows these economies receive. Particular attention is paid to the issue of Diaspora investment and entrepreneurship. There will be an analysis   of   the  financial  and  non-financial  channels  of  Diaspora contribution  and  areas  where  policies can effectively leverage diaspora capital  to  facilitate  development.  The speakers will emphasize the importance of public policies to widen the role of Diasporas in contributing to development. They will also suggest a categorization of diaspora activities and a framework for understanding diaspora diversity and its impact on development. 
 Speakers:
  • Krishnan Sharma, Economic Affairs Advisor, Department of Economic and Social Affairs, United Nations (UNDESA)
  • Paul Ladd, Advisor to UNDP on issues related to inclusive globalization, including development finance, debt sustainability, trade and migration.
  • Manuel F. Montes, Chief, Development Strategy and Policy Analysis Unit, UNDESA
Moderator:
  • Jean-Marc Coicaud, Director of the United Nations University, Office at the United Nations in New York (UNU-ONY).
