MIGRATION AND
SUSTAINBLE
DEVELOMENT

The successful design of domestic and foreign development policy requires the participation of states and their civil societies. The global south and north must cooperate and support each other in a sustainable and cooperative manner. Collaboration also means listening to each other, increasing mutual understanding, recognising the causes of irregular migration and working together to create better opportunities for all.

EVERY COUNTRY IS A DEVELOPING COUNTRY

Promotor*innen für eine Welt: Awareness raising on sustainable development and international development cooperation policies 
Migrafrica is promoter for one world for the district of Cologne. In cooperation with other one-world initiatives and migrant organisations in NRW, the public discourse on sustainable development is promoted. In particular, we want to create awareness among society about the causes of irregular migration, postcolonial structures and intercultural competences. We advise and network civil society organisations and initiatives that are involved in one-world movement and work with projects and actions which point out alternatives for a sustainable society.

Addressing root causes of irregular migration by promoting entrepreneurship in Africa
Migrafrica supports youth entrepreneurship in Africa by empowering young people to utilise their local resources sustainably to generate income for them and other young people in their communities. We also provide awareness raising on the realities of irregular migration to Europe and promote legal paths to migrate to EU.

Migration and Development Council (MDC) – Increasing visibility to highlight the work of diaspora organisations in international development cooperation
In 2019, in a democratic process, we developed and founded the MDC together with more than 30 migrant organisations at federal and EU level. The aim is to contribute to a more effective domestic and foreign development policy with multi-continental expertise.

Migration and Development Council (MDC) will highlight the contributions of migrants to the development of their countries of origin. African diaspora development practitioners have now positioned themselves as critical actors in development cooperation policy circles, however this rarely acknowledged, both in countries of residence and/or origin. African diaspora communities are contributing huge resources through various means to the social welfare and economic growth of their respective homelands, remarkably exceeding the level of official development assistance (ODA).The increasing involvement of the diaspora in homeland development is partly the result of becoming better organised in the countries of residence through such structures such as professional or development-oriented associations.

Acknowledging this Migrafrica will further promote the involvement of migrant professional and development oriented organisations by creating the Migration and Development Council (MDC) as a coordination point to share knowledge and resources.
