"Have impact in their home countries with a mix of social and financial returns: that’s what African diasporas largely call for, but in a different way according to the generation they belong to or their ability to take financial risks .Explore different innovative funding models for diasporas who wish to contribute to economic development opportunities there : this is what the webinar will introduce.  The panel will focus particularly on models with impact on rural areas highly affected by a large migration to towns and other countries and agricultural value chains.
