Diaspora engagement is a key tool to support and strengthen efforts of mobilising the diaspora and effectively harnessing their power for development.

It is also a strategic priority for the African Union (AU). In this project, DMA Global developed a diaspora engagement self-assessment tool for AU Member States to determine their level of diaspora engagement. The tool is to be adopted by the diaspora focal points of AU Member States. This report provides an overview of the project, methodologies for scoring and weighing, and highlights the results from the 11 AU Member States that took part in the pilot.
