Brain Drain, or the migration of skilled and educated individuals from one nation to another, is first and foremost a response to lack of opportunities at home. This phenomenon has adversely affected many countries, especially in Africa, where retaining capacity is often a more important issue than capacity development itself. However, in recent years, countries like India and China, which have exported their brightest for decades, have started to reverse this trend. Studies show that effectively managing the diaspora has played a large role in capacity development by creating jobs, raising incomes and generating disciplined, efficient workforces that have in turn provided a platform for economic growth. This section of the website deals with the issues related to management of diaspora and dealing with brain drain.
