A thematic approach is one of the most effective forms of engagement for diaspora-development. This is because the most productive members of the diaspora concentrate on their area of expertise or specialised interest to make inputs to the countries of origin or heritage. The MSDG Project will develop the structures for a platform of Gambian diaspora-development networks, enabling organisations and individuals to cooperate and collaborate.
The platform and subsequent databases will be divided in themes including:
- Alumni Associations
- Home Town and District Associations
- Professional and Sectoral Organisations
- Community and Civil Society Organisations
- Diaspora Media Organisations.
(The databases will be uploaded in due course)
