This report provides details of donor programmes designed to engage with the South Sudanese diaspora with the goal of supporting their development efforts in the country. It also provides details of similar programmes with the Somali diaspora and diaspora from other post-conflict states in Africa.
A small number of initiatives are currently being undertaken with the South Sudanese diaspora. Three programmes focus on facilitating the return of skilled diaspora to their homeland to work in the public sector or to provide training. Another donor-funded programme involves consulting diaspora groups when designing development programmes. A number of completed or defunct programmes were also identified, all of which focused on skills transfer.
