Education, skills and employment; fostering regional mobility and leveraging remittances for development will receive focus at the Tenth African Development Forum set to be held in Addis Ababa from November 15 to 17, 2016.
The Forum is expected to tackle Africa’s migration issue. It will feature discussions and presentations based on research. Participants will collaborate on Africa’s transformation. Studies show that about 31 million people in Africa have migrated internationally, but migration streams within the continent are larger.
Recent news stories on migration have been dominated by the tragic deaths of people traveling on the Mediterranean Sea and abuse of immigrants working abroad in places like the Middle East.
Data shows migrants have played a vital role in the development of modern countries, shaped labor dynamics across the world, and have served as a cornerstone for the global economy.
According to ECA’s Deputy Executive Secretary, Abdalla Hamdok, the forum will provide an opportunity for African policy makers to analyze issues, review progress, discuss policy options, strengthen partnerships and explore consensus on devising suitable strategies to make migration work for Africa’s transformation.
“The theme stems from the recognition of the central role of migration as an important enabler for inclusive and sustainable development. We seek to raise awareness and deepen understanding of the role of international migration in promoting inclusive growth and transformation in Africa,” he stated.
“The central premise guiding the discussions at the Forum is that international migration plays a critical role in the continent’s endeavor to develop and improve welfare, peace and stability and provide jobs for our growing population,” he said.
Expected at the 10th edition of the African Development Forum are African Heads of State and Government, policy makers, representatives from development partners, UN agencies, academia, civil society organizations and the private sector.
