On 8-9 December 2018, the 10th Diaspora Development Dialogue (DDD10) on ‘The role of the African Diaspora as catalyst for sustainable development in the implementation of the Global Compact for Migration’ (GCM) took place in Marrakesh, Morocco to coincide with the Global Forum on Migration and Development Summit and the Intergovernmental Conference to Adopt the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration.
The conference was organised by the Africa-Europe Diaspora Development Platform (ADEPT), in collaboration with the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation in Charge of Moroccans Living Abroad and Migration Affairs (MDCMREAM), the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH (GIZ), the Council of the Moroccan Community Living Abroad (CCME) and the Forum des Organisations de Solidarité Internationale issues des Migrations (FORIM). The two-days event provided a space for a diverse range of representatives, from NGOs to senior government officials, to communicate on ways to improve the African diaspora contributions to the GCM implementation.
ACP YPN was represented by Ariane Takyi, whose presence ensured that the voice of youth was recognised during key deliberations and exchanges on a vast number of topics related to the conference’s theme. Participants contributed to the production of a 10 points declaration on ‘The role of the African Diaspora as a catalyst for sustainable development in the implementation of the Global Compact for Migration.’
