Some States are starting to acknowledge the benefits of migration and migrants’ potential in disaster risk management and adaptation, including through the transfer of competencies or targeted investments. By removing transfer fees or even by creating special funds, Samoa and Indonesia have facilitated fund transfers from their diaspora. Some of these funds are intended to help rebuild after natural disasters. Other countries innovate in investment mechanisms in order to attract their diaspora’s capital towards climate change adaptation projects (for instance, projects that could include marine ecosystems restoration or the development of sustainable fishing techniques).
