21-25 October 2013 – Training workshop: Strengthening Policymaking Capacities of Emerging African Diaspora Ministries in Migration and Development
The African Diaspora Policy Centre, in partnership with the African Institute for Economic Planning (IDEP), organized a training workshop for African policymakers serving at the newly formed Diaspora-oriented Ministries in Africa.
The training workshop was held at the IDEP Centre in Dakar from 21 to 25 October 2013.
The objective of the training course is to ensure that trainees gain access to up-to-date information that is tailored to their specific policy-making needs, and to acquire technical capabilities to draft a national migration policy which can be translated into feasible strategic interventions.
The course will respond to needs articulated by African governments and departments for a skilled mid-level and senior staff that is equipped with the knowledge and skills and tools to design and implement migration policies that includes the Diaspora as recognized and valuable stakeholders.
ADPC has gained experience in developing and providing trainings for many African countries. The capacity building trainings of 2010 and 2011 have been a great success. In this coming training, 12 governmental officials of the following six countries will be selected: Cape Verde, Chad, Ivory Coast, Namibia, South Sudan, and Tanzania.
