  • Enhanced knowledge and awareness on impact, outreach and modalities of diaspora humanitarian actions & increased collaboration between diaspora and humanitarian actors
  • Guidelines, tools and resources for the humanitarian system and diaspora in support of mutual engagement and joint response
