Global Diaspora Week is a week of global activities for Diaspora Organizations (DO) in the world to advocate, discuss, debate and make recommendations on subjects pertaining to diasporas and their supporting communities. It is organized by Global Diaspora Confederation supported by the UN IOM.

Global Diaspora Week 2021 Theme: Sustainable Development & Migration: Harnessing Global Diaspora Organisations’ Efforts for Development.

Oceania Day will host a High-Level Consultation Meeting for Diaspora Organizations to share the challenges and needs of their diaspora communities and how they work towards Sustainable Development Goals. The meeting will be moderated by GDC and observed by migration experts, and presented by Diaspora Organization leaders. The GDC, observers and nominated Diaspora Organizations will then summarize the findings and your good work for Oceania to present at the Global Diaspora Assembly (Day 7 and International Migrants Day). Some of the findings and recommendations may be summarized in the GDC report instead of the presentations.
