The Migration and Development Civil Society Network (MADE) has evolved out of years of civil society organising in and around Global Forum on Migration and Development (GFMD). Since 2014, the coordination of GFMD civil society activities has become part of MADE, and the annual GFMD Civil Society Days are organised by the Global Civil Society Coordinating Office, in coordination with an International Steering Committee.



AFFORD  webinar

Dear Colleague,

As part of preparations for the Global Forum on Migration and Development (GFMD) 2015, the Global Working Group on Diaspora and Migrants in Development, coordinated by AFFORD, would like to invite you to its first webinar on ‘Diaspora and Migrants as Entrepreneurs and Social Investors: Creating an Enabling Policy Framework’.

This webinar builds on the discussions and recommendations that emerged from the 2014 November webinar on ‘Migration, Entrepreneurship and Development’, some of which included the need to establish partnerships, build stronger networks and create evidence-based data that helps with assessing impact and attracting more resources.

The webinar will look at challenges and solutions from both the perspective of diaspora and migrants enterprises on one hand, and policy makers on the other, in supporting such initiatives.

We look forward to your active participation. Your expertise on this topic would be a valuable contribution to shaping the Working Group’s future advocacy strategy around diaspora and migrant entrepreneurship.

The webinar will be conducted in English.

Tue, Sep 15, 2015 4pm to 5 pm UK time (GMT)

In order to join the webinar, please RSVP, providing your name, job title, and organisation you work for, to by COB Tuesday 8 September 2015.
