The Africa Centre recognised migration as a significant factor for the achievement of all three pillars of sustainable development – economic, social and environmental development of African countries as far as the role of the African diaspora are concern. The objective of our migration and development activities is to contribute to a better understanding of the links between international migration and development to harness the development potential of migration for the benefit of both societies and migrants and to contribute to sustainable development and poverty reduction in countries of origin and descent. With our partners in Europe, the Africa Centre is influencing policy on migration and development including the realization of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and influencing Global Compact on Migration.
