Following the launch of the 2022-2023 GFMD dialogue, African civil society and diaspora joined forces to build momentum around the GFMD and foster greater engagement of Africa and Africans in migration processes. The Abuja Civil Society Forum, a three-day event co-organised by African civil society and diaspora was held in Abuja, Nigeria, from 30 January to 1 February 2023.

The exchanges between civil society and diasporas held during the first two days of the Forum formed the basis for the drafting of the Abuja Statement: an  advocacy document outlining recommendations on the three GFMD priority areas discussed by the participants of the Abuja Forum: climate change, diaspora engagement and labour migration.
