EUDiF

Explore our actions

In the pilot phase of the EUDiF (2019-23) we have built a portfolio of 16 technical support actions, in partnership with government authorities and diaspora organisations. The actions were selected following three calls for applications to the project’s two mechanisms: “Capacity Development Lab” and “Diaspora Professionals 4 Development”. Each action is demand-driven, co-developed and sustainably designed, and centres the added value of diaspora engagement, including through the expertise brought in to support each action. Between them, the actions contribute to 11 of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

Browse the portfolio below to discover each action in detail, from the partners involved, to the tailored programmes of activities, to what participants enjoyed and the progress they feel they made during the collaboration.

Capacity Development Lab

The Capacity Development Lab (CDL) actions equip diaspora organisations in Europe, partner countries and regional organisations with skills, tools and knowledge, empowering them to, ultimately, foster diaspora engagement. To this end, the technical capacity development support provided by EUDiF is demand-driven, small scale and strictly skills and knowledge-oriented.

Types of support:

  • Knowledge transfer events (conduct trainings, facilitated workshops, seminars, webinars, etc.)
  • Assessments, research and/or evaluations (conduct needs assessment, surveys, data collection, profiling, mapping, monitoring, etc.)
  • Strategic documents and/or training materials (draft laws, strategies, guidelines, manuals, curriculum, policies, etc.)
  • Know-how for visibility and communication activities (conduct awareness raising activities, create communication toolkits, etc.)
  • Networking and partnerships

EUDiF does not provide: grants/subsidy, soft and hard equipment, infrastructure, permanent/regular staff cost

Diaspora Professionals 4 Development

Diaspora Professionals 4 Development (DP4D) is a small-scale human capital transfer initiative. It provides support to partner countries via virtual and/or short-term onsite assignments of professionals from the diaspora in key sectors. This pilot mechanism aims to make the most of the know-how and enthusiasm of professionals from diaspora of our partner countries who are willing to share their skills and experience in development projects in their country of heritage.

Types of support:

  • Knowledge transfer events (conduct trainings, facilitated workshops, seminars, webinars, etc.)
  • Assessments, research and/or evaluations (conduct needs assessment, surveys, data collection, profiling, mapping, monitoring, etc.)
  • Strategic documents and/or training materials (draft laws, strategies, guidelines, manuals, curriculum, policies, etc.)
