“Some of you are regular visitors to The Gambia, and others have suffered the pain and isolation of exile, caused by 22 years of dictatorship. Yet, all of you, through different ways,
have maintained your emotional and
developmental ties with our great country”

H.E. President Adama Barrow – 23 September 2017

Stake in the Nation Forum (Annual Event)

As part of the MSDG Project, on 23 September 2017, the President of The Gambia declared that a Stake in the Nation Forum (SNF) will be held annually in The Gambia. The Gambia Diaspora Strategy (GDS) and the Gambia Diaspora Directorate (GDD) were launched at the first SNF on the 13th of January 2018. The SNF is a practical mechanism for diaspora engagement in policy development. It is also an innovation to improve general development policy and practice in the New Gambia. SNFs will include high level plenary sessions and thematic workshops. The forums will aim to bring together Gambians from diverse socio-economic and political backgrounds, and engage Gambian diaspora and migrants from different parts of the world, in substantive policy discourse. The proceedings and deliberations will focus on practicable ways of implementing policies and achieving different aspects of the Sustainable Development Goals and National Development Plan (NDP 2018-21).
