The European-wide African Diaspora Platform for Development (EADPD) Project started in 2011 and will be finalised in December 2013. Five consortium partners implement the programme, namely: the African Diaspora Policy Centre (ADPC) in the Netherlands, the African Foundation for Development (AFFORD) in the UK, the Forum des Organisations de Solidarité internationale issues des Migrations (FORIM) in France, the Coordination Générale des Migrants pour le Développement (CGMD) in Belgium and the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) in Belgium.
The overall objective of the EADPD Project is to promote the contribution of the African Diaspora in Europe through the creation of a network that strengthens the contribution of the Diaspora in all 28 EU Member States and in Norway and Switzerland. Specifically, the project aims to provide support in the establishment of a functioning European platform of African diaspora organizations working on development issues in Africa (1); to improve coordination, communication and cooperation of development activities undertaken by African migrant organisations through the development of tools and mechanism to share information knowledge and expertise (2) and to enhance capacities of diaspora organisations to meaningfully participate in the development cooperation process in Africa (3).
