Dalberg Global Development Advisors is undertaking a study on diaspora investment in Nigeria. The objective of the study is to understand the potential for engaging the diaspora in promoting investment, entrepreneurship, and economic growth in Nigeria. In particular, Dalberg is seeking to understand what motivates the diaspora to invest in Nigeria, and the barriers that may impede engagement. The output of the study will be used to develop solutions and policy recommendations to enable further investments by the diaspora, with the aim of catalysing economic development. Dalberg’s findings will be published in a public report and presented directly to the Office of the Vice President, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the Nigerian Investment Promotion Commission.

By sharing your perspectives on investing in Nigeria, you can support development efforts and help generate economic opportunities for Nigerians, both at home and abroad. The survey should take approximately 15 minutes to complete. Respondents who complete the survey will also be entered in a draw to win one of twenty Amazon gift cards worth £50 or one of five Amazon gift cards worth £200 (terms and conditions here). The prize draw ends at 23:59 BST Tuesday 19th September 2017.

Gathering input directly from the diaspora community is of great importance to Dalberg, and they’d like to ensure that your voices are heard and represented. Please take the time to complete their survey here.

In case of any questions or further interest in the study, please feel free to contact emmanuel.iruobe@dalberg.com.
