Description

​This event will see the launch of the Roundtable Report and offer participants the opportunity to reflect on the proceedings of the DfAD Zambia Roundtable discussion held  in partnership with Diaspora Support Initiative (DSI) Zambia in February 2014 at the Olympic Youth Development Centre (OYDC) in Lusaka, Zambia, and on the practical implications of implementing the report recommendations.

Attended by representatives of the Diaspora, academics, policymakers and practitioners, in both the private and civil society sectors, the February meeting was convened to explore how Zambia can best harness the potential of its diverse Diaspora for national development.
