3 – 4 September 2018, Geneva – ADEPT, represented by Khady SAKHO NIANG, its President and Kekeli Kpognon, ADEPT’s acting executive director have been invited to attend the “Mobilizing Regional Consultative Processes to support the implementation of GCM commitments” side event organised on the margins of the forthcoming preparatory meetings of the Global Forum for Migration and Development (GFMD). Focusing on the subject, “Mobilising Regional Consultative Processes (RCPs) to Support the Implementation of GCM Commitments,” this side event aimed to kick start the multi-stakeholder reflection on how to operationalize the role envisaged for RCPs in the realization of GCM objectives and, in doing so, strengthen the RCP links with varied GCM stakeholders. On the basis of the outcomes of this side event, a concept note will be developed, shared and discussed at another side event to be held during the Migration Week in Marrakesh in December 2018. The event was organised at the initiative of the United Arab Emirates, IOM, and Migrant Forum Asia.
The following day ADEPT has attended the GFMD Dialogue on the Global Compact on Migration Implementation organised at the Palais des Nations in Geneva. This dialogue followed a series of initiatives that began since Germany and Morocco assumed the GFMD Co-Chairmanship in 2017. It was part of the effort of the GFMD to accompany the evolving GCM process and encourage Member States to develop their perspectives on the future of international cooperation on migration.
