Who we are

EUDiF is a pilot project funded by the European Union’s Directorate-General for International Partnerships (DG INTPA) under the Development Cooperation Instrument, running from June 2019 until the end of 2023. The project is implemented by the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD).

How we work

EUDiF seeks to consolidate knowledge and action to address the fragmentation of diaspora engagement for development. We assist diaspora organisations in Europe, countries of origin and the EU to engage and collaborate more effectively with each other on development issues.

Our knowledge

Diaspora expertise
Diaspora members have long been acknowledged as agents for sustainable development with great potential in terms of social, human and financial capital. At EUDiF we believe in mainstreaming diaspora expertise for sustainable development when said diaspora expertise can bring added value.

The Diaspora Professionals 4 Development is a pilot mechanism that recruits and deploys Europe-based diaspora professionals in digital, education, entrepreneurship, environment or health to support short-term development projects in countries of heritage.
