SA4

GDC South America Group SA4

This High-Level Consultation Session invites Diaspora Organization leaders to share insights into the good practices, challenges and needs of Diaspora Organizations when they support diasporas to access decent work and economic growth. While diasporas contribute to the a variety of industries, innovation, development Infrastructure in both countries of residence and origin, Diaspora Organizations play a key role in facilitating them to create greater impact at a local, national and global levels. Together through work and economic growth, diasporas also help develop sustainable cities and communities. All these would not be possible without the year long support of Diaspora Organizations at the forefront.

GDC South America Group SA5

 

This High-Level Consultation Session invites Diaspora Organization leaders to address the challenges and needs of diasporas in vulnerable conditions due to climate change and energy issues. These also link to a wider area involving responsible production and consumption where experienced diasporas can promote together in a diaspora community as a whole. Affected diasporas are both stakeholders and advocates for all these. Diaspora Organizations play an important role in facilitating and support vulnerable diasporas in all possible way.
