Webinar: Diaspora humanitarian intervention in times of crisis

Webinaire : Intervention humanitaire de la diaspora en temps de crise.

Rapport du webinaire

The potential of Diaspora humanitarian intervention in times of crisis can be substantial if it is
systematically harnessed. Diaspora communities operate as the first responders when disaster
happens in their homelands whether it is in response to natural catastrophes or health crises
like Ebola or the current COVID-19 pandemic. However, what all these cases have in common
is that the humanitarian interventions by the Diaspora are still largely informal, haphazard, and
not strategically coordinated neither at the national nor at the local level in the homeland.
Furthermore, the humanitarian assistance support provided by the Diaspora is not widely known
because it is not sufficiently documented. Showcasing cases of humanitarian assistance
support provided by Diaspora communities can increase their profile and visibility in
development community circles in the homeland and beyond. It will also contribute to policy
awareness that might be responsive to mainstreaming Diaspora in development community
circles in their respective homelands so that their humanitarian intervention can be better
organized and scaled up.
