eleventh Diaspora Development Dialogue

The overall objective of DDD11 discussions would be to identify and explore good practices and tangible and effective measures to strengthen diasporas’ capacities to ensure their role as development actors in a transnational perspective.

 

More specifically, these are:

  • Maintain multi-stakeholder consultation spaces to identify and develop sustainable projects capable of improving the living conditions of the populations in migrants and diasporas’ countries of origin.
  • Support the work of Senegalese diaspora representatives in parliamentary and other institutions in their countries of origins while they remain based in their host countries.
  • Promote the convergence and exchanges with their counterparts in host countries to gain experience and visibility in the double space.

 

DDD11 aims to deepen the debate and reflection regarding diasporas’ contribution and engagement with local authorities to build a concerted dynamic of local development, based on good governance and participatory mechanisms.
