Center for Local Development and the Diaspora
Center for Local Development and the Diaspora (CLDD) is a Swedish umbrella organization that works on issues related to voluntary repatriation and making the Diaspora’s role as agents of change visible in global development processes. Diaspora contributes an incredible amount of benefits to their current countries of residence, both in terms of human and financial resources. They play a vital role in enabling the United Nations to achieve their goals for a better and more sustainable future for all by 2030.
We work with returnees and Diaspora in developing their home countries.
That includes involving diaspora in local and home country development and creating a working model that facilitates the Diaspora to repatriate and reintegrate into local society.
We work with local people and Diaspora and stand firmly at the service of NGOs when it comes to writing projects, counseling, etc. We cooperate with the following target groups and individuals: Locals, displaced persons, diaspora, citizens (individuals), associations, Institutions and Authorities, International Aid Organizations and businessmen.
What CLDD can do for you?
CLDD has extensive experience in guiding people in voluntary return and offers some services that lead to successful integration in the country of destination.
As it states in Article 13 of the
Universal Declaration on Human Rights:
Everyone has the right to leave any country, including his own, and to return to his country. "
