The ECA Office for North Africa and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Senegalese Abroad initiated a workshop on the contribution of migration to development in Africa in Dakar (Senegal) on 17 January 2024.

About fifty representatives from various ministries and government institutions involved in migration management in Senegal took part in the meeting. Over the two days of the event, discussions will center on African experiences in making the most of migrants’ contributions to the development of their countries of origin; identifying tools, actions and policies that can accelerate this process; and bolstering South-South cooperation in managing migration across the continent.

The Senegalese government is aware of the changes needed as we strive to implement the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly, and Regular Migration in Senegal. Following the validation of the national migration policy document our government is working following an inclusive approach to migration in order to improve the synergy between Migration and Development,” said for his part H.E. Ibrahima Cissé, Foreign Affairs Advisor and Chief of Staff at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Senegalese Abroad.
