Since 2008, the M4D Net Team moderates a diverse and dynamic online M4D Community. This global network of migration and development practitioners brings together over 5,000 members from across regions.

The objective is to offer a space through which M&D practitioners generate collective knowledge, tab into each other’s experiences, and create partnerships. The contributions of the M4D Net members often support our efforts to feed evidence-based recommendations into policy-making.

You can do this by:

  • Chatting with other members
  • Launching queries on our online forum
  • Getting involved in a moderated e-discussion
  • Ask a key question to a member of our support unit

The voices of the Community are frequently reflected at major M&D events and its concerns and experiences contribute to develop specific knowledge tools.

Members M4D Net

Over 3000 members with diverse backgrounds and from across regions interact and provide each other with mutual support on a daily basis. They all have in common a strong interest and expertise in migration and development related issues and make up the M4D Net Community.

Migration flows impact on development in various and complex ways. Thematic e-Discussions seek to explore specific but often inter-related issues by drawing on the contributions from practitioners and experts. The responses from members are collected and summarized into a consolidated reply for internal and external audiences that have a stake in making migration work for development. 

Live Chats

A panel of experts engage in real-time debates with the M4D members and the wider public. The topics covered are subject to the larger migration and development agenda and the results of a Live Chat feed into policy-making, training material, and larger debates at key migration and development events.
