Influencing Policy for Better Change.

International Development & African Diaspora

About Us




In mid 2009 a number of African Diasporas in Wales met to consider how they might collectively advance their common interest in International development by supporting work carried out by other Welsh international development organizations.

Nature of the initiative 

At the earliest stage it was agreed that the group should meet as a Panel of interested individuals and grow through invitation. It would not be an organization representing Diaspora communities in Wales nor would it embark upon its own international development projects. Rather it would seek to harness the knowledge, experience and skills of the panel members to advise on how to deliver effective international development interventions by contributing a sound understanding of cultures and the social and economic realities of everyday life in Sub Saharan countries.
