3 © 2013 Institute for the Future for Rockefeller Foundation. All rights reserved. SR-1563B The connections between members of a diaspora and their homeland are often strong, and represent a source of exchange, innovation, and learning. While diaspora remittances have long made up an immense proportion of local GDP in many low and middle-income countries— setting a new record of around $534 billion in 2012 according to the World Bank—there is a great need to make this exchange of money efficient and to harness the wider capabilities of the diaspora. Using diaspora connections in a more systematic way could have an outsized catalytic effect on vulnerable communities | Global Diaspora Services | Future Innovation © 2013 Institute for the Future for Rockefeller Foundation.

4 Providing better platforms for people in the diaspora to mentor individuals or even crowdfund larger infrastructure projects back home were but two ways players suggested we could increase the potential of diaspora communities. There was also discussion of incentivizing professional individuals in the diaspora to return home in order to temporarily provide much needed services, like mental health care, to counteract brain-drain losses | Global Diaspora Services | From the Players © 2013 Institute for the Future for Rockefeller Foundation.
