Our mission is to empower Caribbean Diaspora as change agents for the development of the
Caribbean. We aim to contribute to an environment for the diaspora to maximize its
potential-capital, knowledge and networks.
Our vision is a Caribbean with sufficient means and human capacity to pursue its own
social, political and economic development potential to the fullest.
Who? Diaspora entrepreneurs, diaspora organisations working on business development, USA, GBR, CAN, Caribbean governments.
Why? To stimulate diasporians to engage in business activities.
Migrants are increasingly regarded as promoters of development in their countries of origin. The migration-development
debate has rapidly evolved into an issue that cuts across the fields of research, policy and practice.
Often, migrants show strong commitment towards their countries of origin which translates into substantial transfers
of financial, as well as social, cultural and human capital.
By focussing on the Diaspora CDN hopes to contribute to a more effective and efficient use of these
capitals in fostering development.
How? Through research & publications, workshops, forums, etc.
Diversity - We aim to provide an environment in which differences are valued for contributing
to innovation, promoting creativity and maximizing individual potential. We uphold this value
within our own organisation as well as in all our programs.
Inclusiveness - CDN stands for inclusiveness and strives for inclusive approaches towards
development. CDN's focus is the representation of the Caribbean people in general and
diasporian in particular at decision tables, globally.
CDN works to increase the awareness of the added value of diaspora to job creation, growth and
poverty reduction in their countries of origin. We want to contribute to a conducive policy
environment through building the capacities of diaspora actors on lobbying and advocacy &
networking. Furthermore, CDN will actively support diaspora entrepreneurs by organizing
match-making events and by (market) research.
CDN's work focuses on four main interlinked areas
