Shabaka & ICMPD survey


Shabaka & ICMPD are seeking your input to understand diasporas response to emergencies & humanitarian crises.

Shabaka was established in 2014 to help fight the injustices that leave entire communication disadvantaged and shut out from socio-economic and political progress.

To have an evidence-based understanding of diaspora’s humanitarian response, the European Union Global Diaspora Facility (EUDiF) launched a case study titled ‘Diaspora Engagement in Times of Crisis’, a collaboration between ICMPD and Shabaka.

They are trying to understand better how diasporas respond to emergencies and humanitarian crises in their homelands. To help improve these responses – and make diaspora contributions more effective – they are consulting with various stakeholders engaged with diasporas in six selected countries of origin/heritage:

-Lebanon, August 2020 explosion in Beirut
-Sudan, COVID-19 and floods, 2020
-Zambia: Cyclones Idai and Kenneth, 2019
-Nicaragua: Political crisis since 2018
-Nepal: Floods, 2017
-Ukraine: Conflict in the Donbas, since 2014

ICMPD & Shabaka invite diaspora individuals and organisations, humanitarian actors and government officials involved in any of the six cases covered by this research to complete the survey.

The survey is available in English, Arabic, Spanish and Ukrainian. It takes approximately 10-15 minutes to complete, and can be done so anonymously. All responses will be kept confidential.
