Diaspora Mapping and Profiling Survey (Qualitative)

The Government of Zimbabwe in collaboration with the International Organization for Migration (IOM) with funding support from the IOM Development Fund (IDF) are implementing a project titled “Strengthening the institutional capacity of the Zimbabwe Diaspora Directorate for Increased Diaspora Engagement”. The research seeks to explore and assess the needs and participation of Zimbabweans living in the diaspora in national development. The overall objective is to work towards an increased contribution of the Zimbabwean diaspora in the socio - economic recovery and development of Zimbabwe. To realise this objective, the project also seeks to support a structured mechanism to generate data on the Zimbabwean diaspora through a Diaspora Mapping and Profiling Survey in targeted countries, notably South Africa, UK, and USA.

As part of the mapping and profiling study, we are kindly requesting you to complete the questionnaire should you be interested in participating in this study and you are based in either South Africa, UK and USA. Click on the links below to access the questionnaire.
